Review summary

I understand that disasters happen, but when they do, you should not be forced to continue a cruise to destinations you did not originally book for. If your ports change, you should have the option to cancel without fees especially when the new ports are not comparable. They could have a least given us credits or discounts. Who wants to go to the Bahamas 2 times in one cruise even if they are different islands. The private island was a joke and not even worth the time it took to get there.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
The same food served over and over again. Lines were too long when everyone had to be back on the boat from the ports as most places were closed.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Could have offered more adult activities and more areas that were not kid friendly.

Hot Tubs

2 out of 5

They did not work.

This was not the port I booked the cruise for and it was a real disappointment.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

The waterfalls were amazing.

Grand Turk Island

2 out of 5
Should have had more time here. Not enough time to tour the island unless you got up at 530 in the morning.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

1 out of 5
This day was a waste of time. Nothing to do but sit on the beach. No food other than ship food. This port was not the original port I booked for and I was not impressed at all.
