Not up to par

Sail Date: May 28, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall:   The ship has seen better days. (My understanding the ship will be going to dry dock this October.) The ship it was clean but  the common area chairs,  seating, cushions etc showed a lot of wear and tear.

Cabin / Stateroom
The stateroom was dated and worn. The bed was hard as a rock. The bathroom had a number of issues. (Toilet seat was broken and moved all over the place. (Asked to have it fixed the cabinet attendant did what she could.) The shower doors did not have the proper seals to keep water from leaking onto the floor.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Overall the experience was very good. I liked the fact that there where no cabin announcements during the disembarkation that wakes you up at 6 am. (We have experienced this issue on other cruises. ) The only negative was inside the terminal going through customs. The heat was unbearable. My spouse almost passed out waiting in the long line.
Ship Quality
The overall design was very good but again the ship has seen better days.
Destinations and Excursions
We enjoyed the islands we visited. I liked the fact that we stayed in Curacao until 10pm. We were able to go to dinner at a local restaurant with a few people we met on the ship.
Onboard Activities
To many of the activities revolved around shopping and or charging you for use of the facilities.
We only went to one show (on the first night) It was ok but people kept getting up and walking out. I think this was due to the fact that the majority of the audience was Spanish speaking and did not understand the type of comedy being delivered.
Service and Staff
The Service in the main dining room was Fantastic. Our waiters could not have done a better job.
Cabin steward was nice but several times she made animals out of our wet towels and placed them on the bed. (Leaving a wet spot on the sheets.)
Food and Dining
As for the food it was overall just average. Even the "specialty dining " was just a little above average.
