My favorite part of the cruise I think was relaxing at Grand Turk.  I loved our excursions at Aruba and Bonaire, but it was so nice to just get off the ship at our leisure and walk down the beach.  We found a little local food/drink hut and just hung out there and had a couple of beverages, ate conch fritters and jerk chicken and then just enjoyed the beautiful water and beach.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We had overly long wait times to eat in the MDR. Food was good and once seated we had good service all but one night.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I enjoyed the Punchline comedians this time. The shows and Lido deck activities need some changes.......same think every time, but for newbies, guess they really enjoy. I have seen enough Hairy Chest contests and 80's music shows.

I enjoyed the comedy club and the live music but otherwise I would have given this a sad face.

Children's Programs

I assume this were o.k.......had no reason to use.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Our room steward was exceptional. The rest of the ship seemed to be understaffed or disorganized most of the time. I went to guest services once about our room charges and although the gentleman solved the problem, he seemed to be very indifferent about doing so. There was a server in the casino that was downright rude to our group (doing a group pull on a slot machine), he literally said, "move or I will run you over"....crazy

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Overall, things were clean. Did see some messy public bathrooms twice, but overall all was good.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great location. Only issue would be that there was no laundry (ironing) on this floor. Had to carry clothes down a floor to be able to iron them. Our steward (name is like Olguain) was wonderful.....friendly and met every request we made like he was happy to help us out.
