Review summary

Didn’t know what to expect so we were surprised, shocked, and delighted all throughout the trip. Surprised at how organized everything was. Shocked at how you are nickel and dimed for EVERYTHING! And delighted at how friendly and polite much of the staff was.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
To my surprise it was very organized and went very fast

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The main dining room was great with the exception of having to dress every night. We did attend a speciality restaurant that was a mistake. They were rude, condescending and the food wasn’t very good. The buffet was solid good food - although they always ran out of ham in the morning - but by day 7 we were through with it.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Never found the fitness center. The pools were over chlorinated so I couldn’t use. Didn’t have enough seats for movies under the stars.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Hokey! The cruise director had a plastic smile. Two of the stage shows made no sense and one comedian was incredibly bad. The mentalist was good though.

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Excellent service from all with the exception of Quisine.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Everything was clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The bathroom is ridiculous with only one plug that can only be used for a man’s shaver ( you can tell a man designed it!). Our shower leaked but they already knew about it...made me nervous to hear sure it’s because the wall wasn’t sealed properly.

Ship tip

A portable fan was useful. It got stuffy in that tiny space.

Ports of call

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Did a tour around the island before delivery to the airport which was well done.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

2 out of 5
We drank on the dock as we didn’t have enough time to go to St. John’s and never cared for St. Thomas

Basseterre, St. Kitts

4 out of 5
Besides being attacked with tour operators we enjoyed our tour around the island. We will definitely come back to visit St. Kitts!

St. John's, Antigua

2 out of 5
Just drank on the dock. US govt warns of crime on this island and another cruise line pulling out did not leave us with good vibes to tool around and visit.

Castries, St. Lucia

4 out of 5
Friends picked us up and gave us a tour around the island. Will come back again to see the Pitons up close.

Bridgetown, Barbados

3 out of 5
Downtown shopping was disappointing but we had the best meal off ship here in Barbados. Flying fish on the waterfront. Great food and service.

Disembarkation
