Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Had a problem with indifferent waitstaff after they spilled my partner’s chocolate martini on cruise elegant night. Guy’s Burgers staff were terrible about keeping the line moving and reluctant to provide correct orders.

5 out of 5
Amazing water,good beach where we were @ Jacks Shack. Even when second ship arrived,it didn’t get too crowded. Can’t say the same for the area just off the boat however. Silly not to walk the extra 5 minutes for a better experience and MUCH better drinks.
