very disappointed

Sail Date: May 14, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Food was poor quality all around. Chateau Briand was dry and tasteless. Rushed in the early seating. Food in buffet too spicy, and not enough to choose from...Much better on past cruises.
Strong smell of urine in ladies room nearest Casino.
Casino machines were terrible for the amount we spent. 'Everyone was complaining so it was not just our opinion.

Pros: met some nice people

Cons: food and cleanliness was disappointing

Hell was interesting. Turtle Farm was great...a must for children.

Dunn's River too dangerous. Our van driver was reckless. Good tour guide though. Nice girl.
