Great Room Service - Cruise not so good

Sail Date: October 26, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We have been on several cruises before and this was our least favorite cruise.  The dining room experience was not good.  Our wait staff did not seem to know what they were doing and were not very pleasant.  There was not enough entertainment on this cruise.  One thing we did notice on this cruise was the fact they repeated the main stage performances two different days and they only had two main stage performances.  The other days were filled in with short trivial games.  On others cruises we always had some type of stage performances each day of the cruise.  This was such a disappointment for us. 

We did have a great cabin steward that was so pleasant and always smiling.  If at any time we needed information or something extra, he was there to please. 

We enjoy the ports of call even though we had been at most of the ports of calls on prior cruises. 

Ship Quality
For the most part, they seems to keep the public area of the ship clean
Food and Dining
Most of the meals were okay, We did have the filet mignon and that was just terrible.
Service and Staff
We had a great cabin steward, dining room staff not good but in the bar area and buffet area staff was very nice.
Out of the two main stage performances they had, one of the was exceptionally good. The other one was just okay.
Onboard Activities
What little on board activities they had, some of them were good and funny, they others were just a waste of time.
Destinations and Excursions
We enjoy all the destinations. The one excursion we took )which was snokeling) was good but the boat staff were not a fun group.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin steward was very nice and polite and tried to make our stay enjoyable.
Miami, Florida
Nassau, Bahamas
We were in Nassau years ago and did not like being there. At the time if was dirty and disorgainzed. This time it was better but not one of our favoirte areas to visit.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We have been at this port a couple of times and alway enjoy it. Prices for jewelry is a little better than in the states but you do have to know your prices.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
We have been at this port a couple of times before. This time we did a excursion outside of the ship that took us all around San Juan, even in areas we would never go oursleves. It was a great experience and for the $ amount well worth it.
Grand Turk Island
This is a lovely small island. We did a snorkeling excursion on this island and so glad we did. The water is just beautiful and crystal clear. We even got to see sand sharks on this excursion. Well worth the money.


If you want to eat at a table for two and you end up at a table for four or more, just go to the Maitre D' and request a table for two. This is what we did when we ended up with a table for eight. Another thing is if you do not want to eat at a certain time, request your time dining.
