Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple

Very pretty; very clean. In fact, there appeared to be a major effort to keep the ship clean throughout the cruise. Almost every staff member was friendly and helpful.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The quality of food was excellent. It would have been nice to change tables occasionally since we weren't thrilled with our table-mates.

The guest entertainers were not as good as we'd hoped. The ship's cast were good.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff were very helpful and friendly. In ten days, only one person appeared to be a little grumpy.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very good. Always clean. Our stateroom attendant made a major effort.

Shopping was best, however prices weren't as reduced as I thought they'd be.

The water was beautiful and the perfect temperature. We didn't go beyond the beach. The person who got our lounge chairs didn't seem happy with his tip ($1.00 per chair.) He made that fact well known.

We missed our scheduled tour and had to take one from a vender not associated with the ship. Not a good idea. Parts of the island were beautiful, but it was depressing to see the poverty surrounding the docking area.
3 out of 5
There was so much traffic that we weren't able to finish our tour. It would have been nice to visit the fort.

Pros: The food was better than on other cruise lines; the buffet was open every evening.

Cons: No sanitizing towelettes; not able to purchase a bottle of alcohol for room; not able to have onboard purchases shipped home
