Southern Caribbean Cruise

Sail Date: February 02, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The cruise and ship were great. The food in the buffet was less than great. Lunches and dinners were pretty bland. Salads and desserts were the same every day. Breakfasts on the Lido deck never changed. Breakfasts and dinners in the Lincoln Dining room were very good. The wait staff was attentive. Room attendents did a fine job preparing the room in the morning and again in the evening. Room service was fantastic and very quick. The onboard shows were good - not great. We enjoyed the excursions on the islands with the exception of the trip on St. Kitts. That excursion was canceled after we stood about 90 minutes waiting and waiting for the bus. The tour guide kept saying that the bus was coming - it never came and then we were told to go to the excusrions desk for a refund and to schedule another excursion. By that time all excursions had either left or were sold out. All in all I'd rank the cruise a "B".
