Review summary

IF YOU WANT TO RELAX IN A PLEASANT SETTING, BOOK THE NEPTUNE SUITE (SA CAT) THE COST IS WORTH IT.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
SINCE WE WERE NEPTUNE SUITE MARINER CLUB MEMBERS IT IS ALWAYS A SMOOTH AND FAST EMBARKATION.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
FOOD IN THE MAIN DINING ROOM HAS GOTTEN WORSE. LIDO DECK LUNCH WAS OK. THE PIZZA STATION AT THE AFT ONLY MAKES PIZZA AS A WHOLE PIE, MANY GUESTS ONLY WANTED 1 PIECE SO THEY ORDERED THE WHOLE PIE AND THREW AWAY THE REST. PIZZA WAS GOOD. DRINKS FOR THE MOST PART WERE GOOD EXCEPT AT THE POOL BAR WHERE THE BARTENDER WAS DOING A SHORT POUR AND FILLING THE GLASS WITH JUICES.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
AMERICAS TEST KITCHEN CHEF CONRAD GRIESE WAS FANTASTIC, THE CASINO SEEMED TO BE SMALLER THEN THE LAST TIME WE WERE ON THE EURODAM BUT I STILL WON PLAYING ROULETTE.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
SADLY HOLLAND'S STAGE SHOWS ARE HIGH SCHOOL QUALITY SCENERY AND PROP WISE. OTHER LINES ARE DOING BROADWAY AND VEGAS SHOWS WHILE HOLLAND JUST PUTS ON THE SAME STUFF YEAR AFTER YEAR. THE OTHER NIGHTS HAD A COMIC JUGGLER AND A COMIC MAGICIAN, THEY WERE GOOD BUT STILL NOT REAL COMEDY.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
ALL THE CREW WAS VERY GOOD, CONCIERGE WAS SUPER EFFICIENT AS WERE OUR SUITE STEWARDS' FIRST NIGHT DINING WAS POOR AT TABLE 118. WE ASKED TO BE CHANGE AND GOT TABLE 117 WHICH WAS ACROSS THE DINING ROOM WERE WE HAD THE BEST SERVICE POSSIBLE FOR THE REST OF THE CRUISE.

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER

Ship tip

IF YOU ARE UNDER 50 YEARS OF AGE CHOOSE ANOTHER CRUISE LINE AND IF YOU ARE OLDER DON'T BRING YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, THERE IS NOTHING FOR THEM TO DO COMPARED TO CARNIVAL OR ROYAL CARRIBEAN .

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
WE DID "DA PARTY BUS TOUR" WHICH DOES BOTH SIDE OF THE ISLAND(FRENCH AND DUTCH) A GREAT EXPERIENCE BUT IF YOUR SHIP LEAVES AT 2:30 IT COULD BE POSSIBLE YOU COULD MISS THE SAILING. ROAD CONSTRUCTION AND TRAFFIC ARE TERRIBLE, ALSO, ORIENT BEACH ON THE FRENCH SIDE IS TOTALLY GONE. ALL THE GREAT RESTAURANTS AND SHOPS AND THE NUDE BEACH WERE WIPED OUT AND THE ONLY THING LEFT IS PART OF A PUBLIC BATHROOM.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
