People working were all excellent. Ship was very old and rusty allover. Food was average at best and paying $50 each for specialty restaurants was not worth it. Being charged $59 for a $12 bottle of wine was robbery. This was our 10th cruise and we felt this one was just OK. We had a problem with an excursion on Martinique. We were charged $105 each and we went to a pottery that was partially open and only stores not a pottery to see crafters. We were taken not to 1 but 2 views of Diamond rock? Then we went to a restaurant and were not given a choice in food and was served fish which I am allergic too. Everyone was very unhappy with food. Service was so slow we ended up being told we would be having no tour of rum factory and 10 minutes to visit. We were late getting back to ship. We feel we should be reimbursed for this tour.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was average and had what we needed. Pillows were old and need replacing. Tiles in bath were cracked.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Ship is getting old and tired. Lots of rust, broken tiles, chipping paint.
Destinations and Excursions
We have been to most places before and found choices were limited this trip
Onboard Activities
Not much that interested us on this trip
Children's Programs No kids with us
We did not do shows. They are always at the wrong time for us.
Service and Staff
All staff was awesome. Salvadore took great care of us and our room.
Food and Dining
Food was just average. $50 extra for specialty restaurants was not worth it.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Did not spend time there. Next time we will.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We went out on Tall ship. Was fun and the people sailing her were awesome!
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Train was relaxing. Have done Fort and beach here too. All was good.
Roseau, Dominica
Poor island has had tons of damage. We had a family friend take us for a tour all day. We saw parts most would not go. It was a beautiful island. Hoping things get better soon.
Fort-De-France, Martinique
Been here before and remembered how unfriendly people were. Not a favorite.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Not a fan of this island as we are not shoppers. We went to Trunk Bay on St. John for the day. Was awesome even with rain.
