We were cruising to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday. We dined at Rembrandt Restaurant and the wait staff who sang her an Indonesian birthday song was so lively and entertaining! We simply loved it! Overall, we had a wonderful time.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food generally was quite delicious and tasty. In the mornings we ate at Lido; in the evenings, we generally ate at Rembrandt. There was a lot of choices. Our one dinner at the Pinnacle Grill took three hours -- for an 8 pm sitting, the waiters did not take our orders until 8:45 pm; we did not get entrees until about 10 pm. Although the size of our group may have been a factor, we all thought three hours for dinner was excruciatingly long. Our dining experience at Tamarind was excellent -- great service and delicious food!

The ship's singers were terrible -- they destroyed every song because they cannot carry a tune. So they get a "not recommended" rating. However, the guest performers such as Joel Mason and the magician were excellent. Mason tore the house down with his performances of Elton John. Jason the cruise director was also excellent -- very amenable and talented. He and Mason get "the best" ratings, which brings this to average. The shore excursions were wonderful -- Latin Traditions exposed us to a wonderful flamenco guitarist and his lovely dancers; we also parasailed and snorkeled at the Half Moon Cay.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
But for one waitperson at the beginning of the cruise, most of the staff were extremely friendly and wanting to be helpful.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very comfortable, even though there were three of us in one stateroom. There was a problem with the hot and cold water handles in the bathroom -- sometimes the only water that came out was hot or extremely hot. Luckily, two of us purchased spa tickets, which allowed us to shower in the spa area. But overall, the stateroom was clean and comfortable.
