Review summary

Unbelievable ship. Too many people for size of most eating/shopping/recreation areas. Crowded with long lines. Awesome cabin balconies. Windjammer not open enough and best part of the restaurant is roped off quickly. Got stuck on the elevator :( overall a great experience. Disappointed with crowded and limited basketball, ping pong. Bumper cars a joke. Very limited hours with lines that stretch forever and very few minutes of being in the cars.

Reminded me of a nursing home cafeteria

Windjammer Marketplace

Crowded. Poor quality food. Nicest areas usually closed. As you enter “washy washy” I agree with washing hands but got sick of the child greeting. Wait staff were unfriendly and unhelpful most of time.

American Icon Grill

No a/c. Would have so enjoyed getting out of the sticky heat for a milkshake. But open to the outside.

Gaming Area

Pitiful. Our guys love basketball and ping pong. This was the first cruise we were ever on with limited hours. Huge amount of people for very limited opportunities to play. Biggest disappointment

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Awesome. I loved the market showing local culture. They will pressure you- but enjoy it. It’s how they do it. No need to walk far. Take advantage of the awesome free tram. Great free food. Wow!
