12 Night Southern Caribbean (Cape Liberty Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 10, 2015

Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 9179

The boat is in new; it's design, artistic selection, and facilities are top notch (except the SLOW elevators)!

The crew were great/friendly - certainly above norm compared to some other cruise lines. "Dynamic dinning" is not my thing and it could be hard to get a reservation (unless you are tech savvy and spend time planning prior to cruising). I hate the smoking section on deck 14, it affects half the path way (or the ship) on the deck where the main restaurant is located (and traffic is heavy).

Compared to other cruise lines, the quality is so so and the variety is limited. Nonetheless, they are not cheap - I mean the investment in producing them is evident.

Cabin / Stateroom

It's VERY nice! And so is the service.

Ship Tip

"Wonderland" is great and "Silk" has a lot to improve (if one desires true Asian food). Expect long wait for everything (sitting down food service could be very slow at times). The free ice cream on deck 14 is the same as Country Buffet.

We drove and the waiting in the car is very long (due to slow moving drop off process). It'd be nice if the port could provide a lane for those who only need to "park and self carry".

Follow the crew and go where they go.
