See comments below. The cruise ship needs updated.  Only one outlet in our stateroom.  Bathroom should have a night light.  Unfortunately the outlet in the bathroom only works when the main light is on so we could not plug in a nightlight.  Entire ship was showing signs of it's age. Is in need of decor updating and repair.  

Cabin / Stateroom
drawer under sofa was broken as well as the sink drain. Cabin was very small, otherwise, the bed was comfortable.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Long, long lines for embarkation. Disembarkation was smooth. Long lines to pick up alcohol that had been purchased. Also long lines at the ship's service desk. Need to have more staff working these areas.
Ship Quality
Cleanliness was outstanding, The Staff was very friendly and helpful. Ship quality needs updating. Had to pay to use wifi which we were surprised at so did not use.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Did not use
Movies on deck were not captioned for the hard of hearing so could not watch them. Also seating was impossible since all of the empty chairs were covered with towels.
Service and Staff
Pete, our cabin boy was absolutely fantastic.
Food and Dining
Buffet was basically the same food day after day. The continental breakfast section was pre-made thawed out choices.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic
Depressing regarding the way people live in the Dominican Republic. We did feel safe enough since we had armed guards around the tour bus at every stop.
Grand Turk Island
Best place ever. We should have booked more tours. Beautiful island.
