Needs to be refurbished

Sail Date: December 12, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This ship looks old with chipped paint, rusted spots, stains and rips in carpets.  The ports of call made this vacation a success as we planned our own excursions.  The food was average at best.

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation took forever. Disembarkation was much easier and faster.
Ship Quality
Needs to be refurbished badly.
Destinations and Excursions
We planned our own so it was amazing. Never book through the ship as the prices are double and tours are bigger and not as intimate.
Onboard Activities
Not much variety.
Children's Programs
No comment. We didn't travel with kids.
They need more show times. Comedians were only shown at 10:15pm. Not much to do on Sea Day.
Service and Staff
It was okay. Staff didn't smile that much but they were friendly.
Food and Dining
Food was average. Very little variety. Sushi was a joke, only cucumber with rice. Have to pay for Johnny Rockets. Ran out of food in Wind Jammers and took a long time for them to replenish. Carnival has much better food.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Never book through the ship because the price is double. Always walk past the tourist area and find the local taxi/tour guides for better tours and prices. We get our best tours that way. St. Thomas is great for snorkeling.
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
Beach day here as there is not much else to do on this island.
St. John's, Antigua
Island tour is best here.
Castries, St. Lucia
Boat tour around the island is amazing.
St. George's, Grenada
Spice plantation and factory tour is wonderful here. Come home with lots of fresh spices. Grab a cheap banana nut smoothie before getting back on the ship. Delish!!


Find the nearest bathroom outside of your stateroom if you share. To avoid frustration at the elevators, ride them up and then ride them back down so you aren't faced with full elevators when they come to your floor. Ask for ketchup packages before you get your food because they always run out.
