WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME ON OUR CRUISE VACATION. THE PORTS OF CALL WERE GREAT. WAS A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED THAT THE STINGRAY TOUR WAS CANCELLED IN GRAND CAYMAN DUE TO WINDS. DIDN'T KNOW IT UNTIL WE GOT OFF THE SHIP AND IN CAYMAN. TOOK A TAXI TO 7 MILE BEACH. WAS $4.00 EACH WAY. DID THE BAMBOO BEACH CLUB TOUR IN JAMAICA. THAT WAS JUST GREAT! THE ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT WE HAD WITH THIS CRUISE WAS THAT WE REQUESTED EARLY DINING (6:15), WERE TOLD THAT WE HAD IT AND WHEN WE CHECKED IN WE WERE CHANGED TO LATE DINNER (8:15) AND WERE TOLD WE COULDN'T CHANGE IT. WAY TOO LATE TO EAT DINNER, CONSIDERING THAT THE SHOW IS AFTER DINNER AND NOT BEFORE....SO THE WHOLE NIGHT WAS JUST WAY TOO LATE AFTER HAVING A LONG DAY IN PORT AND GETTING UP EARLY THE NEXT DAY TO DO TOURS IN ANOTHER PORT. THE FOOD IN THE LIBO DECK WAS THE SAME EVERY DAY...NOT MUCH VARIETY AND SO PACKED SOMETIMES YOU COULDN'T GET NEAR IT. ALSO, YOU WERE OUT AT A PORT ALL DAY, WHEN YOU CAME BACK TO THE SHIP TO GET SOMETHING TO EAT, THEY WERE JUST CLOSING UP THE FOOD! IT SHOULD BE LEFT OUT SO ANYONE COMING BACK ON BOARD AT 3 OR 4 PM COULD EAT LUNCH....CONSIDERING WE WERE NOT EATING DINNER UNTIL 8:15!!!!!!!!!!! DISEMBARKMENT WAS A BREEZE....NOT PROBLEM UNTIL WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT...THAT WAS A NIGHTMARE! SO MANY PEOPLE PUSHING AND SHOVING. THEN OUR PLANE WAS DELAYED, THEN WHEN WE FINALLY ARRIVED HOME, OUR LUGGAGE WAS ALL RUINED AND RIPPED!!!! OVERALL, A GREAT TIME AND CAN'T WAIT TO GO AGAIN...

LIBO FOOD WAS PUT AWAY TOO EARLY...DINING ROOM FOOD WASN'T ALL THAT GREAT AND WAY TOO LATE TO EAT. THE STAFF WERE EXCELLENT AND WAITED ON YOU HAND AND FOOT!

Entertainment

ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE LATE DINNER SEATING SHOULD BE BEFORE
DINNER WHILE THE EARLY DINNER IS BEING SERVED...WAY TOO LATE
