The food in the main dining room was excellent (better selection and/or quality IMHO than HAL, Royal Caribbean, Azamara, Oceania, and Hurtigruten)
Our waiter Charniel and assistant waiter Petar were the best we ever experienced. Very proficient, attentive, and friendly.
The stateroom and verandah were fine, roomy and comfortable enough for the two of us.
The ship's tours were reasonably priced for the most part (lower than other lines except for one that offers 50% off if you book before the cruise). This was our first East Caribbean cruise so can't really compare.
The final disembarking procedure was the very best of any other line that we have sailed on.
Internet connection was essentially useless, way too long to open websites and download/upload mail. All the remote islands have high speed so why can't ships at sea? Is the slowness a function of the money they can rake in?
Charging for bottled water when disembarking on a ship-sponsored land tour (many other lines provide gratis)
"Happy Hour" applies only to the drink of the day (other lines have 2 for 1 on everything)
The Mast Grill had very few tables. Diners were expected to sit on chaise lounges balancing their plates and drinks. I complained and they doubled the tables to about 10. The pool deck only has chaise lounges along the rails, other lines have tables and chairs where you can play games, have a drink< ETC>
