Very Nice Cruise

Sail Date: February 21, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Very easy embarkation thanks to Phyllis Cronin's expert help as usual. Food was very good especially our favorite dinner which was lobster/shrimp night. Some of the dinner menus were limited. Lido buffet quality continues to slip. Cruise we took in 2014 had stir fry bar, missed it on this one. Show quality very limited, no orchestra (band). Best show was a comedian/hypnotist. Balcony room was good but location had us near 2 AM loud music shows. Sorry we go to bed by 10 or 11. Evi, our cabin steward was the best we have ever had, so efficient & friendly. Dining staff was just average, believe they have cut numbers of help. Never saw much of dining management not that they were needed. Need to get our shore excursions in advance, could not get 2 we wanted but enjoyed the ones we took especially in Dominican Republic to Santo Domingo. Curacao was great.

Ship Quality

Service and Staff
Evi, cabin steward best we have ever had
No orchestra, music too modern, guessing average age on cruise 65+
Children's Programs did not use
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Boarding organization poor on one we took in Curacao
Cabin / Stateroom
It is close to late night music so if you go to bed early get a cabin on the other end of deck, say 6200's
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Grand Turk Island
Wild donkeys roaming the island
La Romana, Dominican Republic
As long as you take a tour, DO NOT WALK AROUND IN La Romano
Willemstad, Curacao
Tour was late, no shopping time
Oranjestad, Aruba


Eat lunch before 1:30 or selections very limited. Ask for Monet dining room. Renoir which we had has no windows, kind of small.
