overall good cruise

Sail Date: February 14, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The good:  good itinerary as we had not been to D.R., St. Thomas or Grand Turk; we rented a car on St. Thomas and took some beautiful pictures on the drive; our balcony cabin was very comfortable and the room steward really good; love the serve-yourself ice cream on the Lido deck;; embarkation and disembarkation were both easy.  The bad:  bed was really uncomfortable so both of us woke up with backaches; a/c seemed to go off during the night even though we had thermostat all the way down; food was average, even in the dining room; service in the dining room was very slow for our table; excursion on D.R. was terrible, supposed to be Panoramic Tour of Puerto Plata, but we were taken to a plaza where music was playing so loud we couldn't hear our guide, then into a church where echo and staff talking loudly kept us from hearing our guide again, then he tried to lead us down a street to an amber store (one of our group was handicapped, and we had asked at the Excursions Desk if this tour had a lot of walking and were told it did not) but we declined and sat in the plaza for 20 minutes while waiting on the others to return; so nothing "panoramic" about the tour at all; only news on the TV was CNN.

Cabin / Stateroom
Seemed like the a/c was off and on even though we had the thermostat as low as it would go.
