Review summary

Service with the the exception of guest excursions and guests services was first class, guest excursions manager Hilde was rude and difficult to deal with. Screenshot anything you book as evidence as when we complained about a tour , we were told we were wrong repeatedly until I produced the screenshot. Should not have to battle on holiday to get things right ! Took 5 phones to get a refund from a cancelled restaurant. Really poor . Waiters and bar tenders were all great . Cabin was ok, lacked powerpoints which was annoying and balcony not cleaned during the 10 days. Room service breakfast was inconsistent, predominantly cold and incorrect orders. Wouldn’t book any tours with the ship again, poor quality and very bad value for money.

Snorkel and beach bbq lunch booked through cruiseline. Water was very rough and murky, snorkelling was waste of time no fish, lunch was in a cafe on the dock, chicken , ribs and cold baked beans, not good, plastic everything including cutlery which snapped when trying to cut the food. Beach was busy and very commercialised.

Willemstad, Curacao

Beautiful beach and water at Blue Bay, was some construction noise on beach. Waterfront was delightful and a 10 minute walk from the ship, floating bridge was worth seeing , very European vibe. Lovely buildings. Great day out

Kralendijk, Bonaire

Did island tour and gourmet michelin star luch on tour from ship. Very expensive, island tour was a joke, riding around in a filthy bus with no windows or suspension looking at piles of trash, and a couple of distant flamingos. Gourmet buffet lunch was a set two course meal , with no veggie option, eventually was given a slice of fancy cauliflower! Absolute rip off . Hotel where lunch is looked nice but appalling service and getting into the water was painful due to the very wide stretch of broken coral the entire length of beCh.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Clean , safe, quaint port. Easy to walk around,short stroll from where the ship docks , great buildings, nice restaurants and great key lime pie ,
