We enjoyed the ship. There is always so much to do. The entertainment is second to none. 


We we were very disappointed the the Captain choose to change our route. He said it was because of the tropical depression (hurricane Matthew). The fact is that we were well ahead of the storm and other ships had no problem going to the ports we were supposed to be at. Disney's Majic was in St Thomas the same day, they had absolutely no issues. Adventure of the Seas (a RCI ship) was in the exact same area. The Captain made a bad decision that ruined a lot of people's plans. One couple was getting married on St Thomas. I got the impression that this ship is not the most sea worthy ship and they avoid weather at all costs or the Captain jumped at the chance to take us to their private island Labadee (in Haiti) directly in the path of Hurricane Matthew!  In Labadee RCI gets an opportunity to just make more money off of the passengers.

The only standout was Claudio in the Chops restaurant. He was incredible and a true professional. He went above and beyond. Claudio gave us the WOW factor.

Ask for Claudio at Chops to wait on you!
