Cabin Type: Inside

While the island experiences were awesome, the ship was full of problems. We had two cabins.One lost electricity for most of a day. The other,which was a suite, had a toilet that did not always flush, a mini fridge that did not stay cold and no cold water in the bathroom sink. We had such problems with the main dining room that after the second night of our 8 day trip we never went back. We waited an hour and a half for a table and then they proceeded to lead us to table after table which were for other families then left us standing in the middle of the restaurant while they tried to figure it out. Two of the watches we bought on the ship didn't work properly and they would not exchange them or refund our money.

too many conflicting times made us miss many things we wanted to do/see.

Ship Tip

impossible to get a seat outside after nine a.m. so don't take advantage of evening shows if you want to swim the next day.
