Review summary

Overall, this cruise was great. We have cruised with RC before and will return, possibly this coming October. We realize there will be glitches and the ones we had won’t deter us from cruising with RC again.

Dining room staff were excellent ( Biplab and Simon) for table 356. They were both very friendly and efficient! Their aim was to please us and they certainly did that. Room service was also excellent. Everyone was excellent!

Very nice!

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Overall very nice. Balcony door creaked in moderate seas. Maintenance staff unable to fix. We called them twice. We determined that if we put the door handle at 10 0’clock, the noise stopped. Shower overflowed due to shower drain strainer plugged with debris, hair, etc. Attendant cleaned strainer and we had no more issues. Attendant very friendly and nice.

Try the specialty dining, food is great!

POrt was OK. Bus tour of the Pitons excursion was terrible! We sat in back of bus and the ride was terrible. When bus hit a bump or pothole, the rear of the bus bottomed out giving us a uncomfortable jar. Turning left or right we experienced something dragging or rubbing. Of the 4 hour ride, approximately 3 1/2 hours was riding.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Favorite port on this cruise. Excursion was awesome and driver (Joseph) was most knowledgeable.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Same as embarkation, quick and easy. We feel that the fee for parking garage was exorbident.
