Apparently youj don't want to know - I've tried 4 times now to enter my opinion and each time I finished, I am told My Session Expired! Probably becuase we had so much to complain about! Told to be a Port by 12-12:30 for 4:00 departure! We waited for 4+ hours in the heat, in the port lobby with 3,000 upset passengers - no food, no water, empty drink machines and we hadn't even got on ship! No welcoming party - no caribbean music! Just a blaring Videotron of RAP MUSIC day and night - day after day! No explanation of delays - left Port after 9:00 PM!!! (that's a 5+ hour delay!) Heard lots of experienced passengers complaining! We took another couple to share the experience - and we were embarrassed!l

Pros: The Ports - especially Hell, Grand Caymen & the Rum Factory

Cons: The ship - the long lines - waiting to finally set sail !!!!
