Generally very good but with a few problems.

Pros: Friendly crew with an outgoing Captain. Food was a high quality but selection and variety are down from previous cruises. Great itinerary. The ship is not too big and not too small. Lines to any activity were not very long and you could even get a deck chair. The rooms are a bit bigger than other cruise lines. Great hamburgers at the pool. The production shows with a live orchestra were excellent. Good selection of tours at every port. The ship was rock solid despite a storm earlier in the week. Service in the cabin, restaurants and bars was excellent. Ashley was a great Ship Hostess.
Cons: The "unlimited" internet package was "limited." Very difficult to even establish a link, particularly at sea, in your cabin. When you did "get on" the experience was miserably slow. Forget about streaming anything. They run tours "rain or shine" and our day in Grenada we had tropical strength winds and rain that made the whole experience dangerous. We begged the tour guide to take us back to the ship but he refused. We even spent two hours at the beach with all 12 passengers huddled under a thatched roof hut with the torrential rain, standing up the whole time. Horrible. They lost a portion of our laundry that we were depending on but it was "found" on the last day of the cruise. Terrible comedian on Thursday that made it seem like our lack of laughing was our fault.
Overall I would recommend the cruise because some of our issues were just bad luck and wouldn't happen to everybody on every cruise.
If rain is forecast and your tour has a catamaran, beach or snorkeling included then I would not book it or cancel it more than 24 hours in advance. If there are doubts about the weather then don't book a ship tour and wait until you get off the ship to book one with the many tour operators there.
