Baltimore Caribbean Feb. 21-Mar. 3 2016: Good times....again!

Sail Date: February 21, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

As Crown and Anchor members, we had an extremely easy and quick embarcation in Baltimore.  This year, we tried the champagne brunch and 3-meal specialty package and the pasta making class at Giovanni's Table, all fabulous experiences.  Menu and service, room service, and Windjammer fare and service were better than last year.  Disappointed in lack of coordination between event start times and what were posted in the Cruise Compass -- too many discrepancies.  On-board entertainment was so-so.  Warning to shoppers in Falmouth, Jamaica: do not assume that sale signs in port shops are the real prices of items that are not really marked down.  Got ripped off at Falmouth Trading Post, as did others on our cruise.  Had an amazing time, even though the weather didn't cooperate.  Would definitely make this an annual trip with varied itinerary, as it's so easy to board in Baltimore!Happy

Cabin / Stateroom
Toilet was unsanitary when we arrived. But rest of the time it was well-cleaned and promptly attended to unless we hung the do not disturb sign.

Crown and Anchor lounge coffee/latte/espresso machine kept breaking down, and we got the run-around about where to go to get free afternoon coffee drinks. This is an older but refurbished ship and quite comfortable and accessible. Salon and spa services were fabulous.
