Champagne Bar / Martini Bar

5 out of 5

Great martinis and service with a “show”. The bartenders tossed bottles and shakers, poured multiple drinks at a time and balanced glasses on their foreheads and arms. Kadek, Igede and the rest were wonderful.

Murano Restaurant

Jasminka the sommelier was great. She made some great recommendations for wines to try.

Main Dining Room

Our wait staff, Magdiel and Alejandra were excellent. Alejandra has about the biggest smile I’ve ever seen! They both greeted us with questions about our day and remembered our water preference. I requested an extra cushion for my chair on the first night and it was always there every other night.The food was very good to excellent. The choices did begin to repeat as this was a 12 night cruise.

Concierge cabin was great and our steward, Alex was wonderful. The balcony is just a bit bigger than most other concierge cabins.

Another beautiful island and tour. Only disappointment was Mother Nature decided to pour on us just as we were getting to the beach!

Kingstown, St. Vincent

Wanted to love this island. While it’s beautiful, the roads were the worst we saw. They need to put some more time, money and energy into their tourism.

St. George's, Grenada

Love the facial recognition! From when we got in line to leave to when we got in line for our taxi only took 15 minutes. Had to wait as long for the taxi!
