Review summary

This was a wonderful week. Holland made the boarding and unloading painless. The Crows Nest was beautiful and well worth a visit upstairs. The Lido Deck food was tasty and had plenty of choices. The dueling pianos and Lincoln Center Center Stage was phenomenal. The DR stop was nice but taxis off property VERY Expensive. Nothing much to do there excepy shop so I was disappointed whn the taxis to get to the best DR beaches were so expensive. Puerto Rico was great. The shopping was plentiful and it was great to see our southern neighbors recovering nicely from Maria. Saint Maarten was wonderful and the beaches stunning. It was sad to still see so much damage there that Maria left in her wake. Didn't hear much about Saint Maarten's hurricane Maria damage but from the looks they are still suffering. However, the water and beaches were as beautiful as ever. Half Moon Cay was my favorite stop! Despite being there before I always find this one of my favorites. The water is enchanting. The sand is soft and powdery. Only complaint....sell buckets of beer, not just singles! All and all a lovely week.

Food and Dining

Excellent food choices and tasty treats on the Lido deck. The burgers around the pool were yummy, yummy. Really need to work on their Dining Room choices and service though. Need big time help for desserts. Not much choice and what they did had was not all that tasty.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Mauro at The Crows Nest Bar was GREAT! Our room stewards were excellent too. However, In-Room dining staff needs more training. They couldn't get an order right all week.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Good. Room stewards did a great job and most all the restrooms were clean too. Ship does need some "sprucing up" and modernizing though.

Cabin / Stateroom

Great size and loved the balcony. Décor needs a facelift.

Ship tip

Enjoy the balconies.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

3 out of 5
Not much to do around the port. Hotels are just okay and food was very expensive.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

3 out of 5
Not much to do at the port and taxis to the best beaches in the world (my opinion) were way to expensive! They wanted $80 round trip for a 20-30 minute ride. Someone needs to reel them in on this. They had plenty of taxis available because no one was taking them do to cost!

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Great shopping port! They have done a great job of cleaning up after Maria.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

My favorite! Great water and great beach. Please start selling buckets of beer instead of just singles.
