Never Again!

Sail Date: September 01, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was not that bad for its age. It could stand to be refurbished. The crew was great as always. Please be aware that there is a large number of spanish speaking passengers on this ship and the cruise caters to them. They are very rude and do not seem to care what their children are doing. This was our first and last time sailing from Porta Rico. As others have written these people are very rude and do not seem to have basic manners, when the elevator doors open they rush in before letting the people on off, they don't wait in line, they see an opening and jump in, etc. We heard these same complaints from all of the other guest on board and even some of the crew.
The ports were great, we loved Aruba.

Pros: The staff was very friendly and did a great job.

Cons: All of the rude passengers and their children running wild!!!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The buffet was not that good, thank goodness for the New York Deli. The dinning room was okay.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was average, it needs to be updated.
Service and Staff
On all the cruises the staff are always very helpful and friendly.
