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.

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.

Been here before and remembered how unfriendly people were. Not a favorite.

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.
