Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Nassau port time too time to see anything except the junk shops.

St. Thomas is great if you want to buy diamonds............otherwise, forget it!!!!

St. Martin was charming............a variety of shops.

Dress code needs to be enforced in the dining room...........tee shirts and bare middles do not make it in the dining room.  Jackets and ties need not be required but smart casual should be expected.  Children should be appropriately dressed.  Perhaps one dining room should be designated "anything goes"  and the other should be "smart casual"  with dress codes or lack of them listed. Formal nights on this ship should be done away with.  It is huge and attracts a group that are not interested in dressing for dinner. 

This was our first RC cruise.  We have sailed 2x with Princess and once with Holland America.  We did not experience this lack of taste on the other cruises. 

There should also be a pool for adults.

Food was mediocre at best.

Breakfast in the Windjammer was excellent.

Cabin was comfortable.  Cabin service was adequate, although we could never find our attendant.  The second day, he never did our cabin until we were at dinner.

The entertainment was very good.  Next time I will book ahead.

Plenty of bars and elevators.

Ship Quality
Huge..........attracts a specific type of traveler. Older people would be better off with a different venue.
