Other than slow room service and a suite with a Way too small shower stall, and room temperature you couldn't really control, a great cruise and ship.

Over all, fantastic. Did receive my pre paid drink package cup until bed time on Amdahl one of cruise. Asked several, but no cup. But, I did finally get one. All else was perfect. Just what we needed and hoped for.

Awesome Get Away by mackbowie

My husband and I really enjoyed our cruise. The only thing we did not like was the hours of the Windjammer. It didn't seem to be open when we wanted a bite to eat outside of the main dining room. Johnny Rockets served something that looked like hamburger but did not taste like it. We loved the hibachi restaurant and the service. Looking forward to our next cruise

Can’t say enough good things about our waiter and assistant waiter for dinners each night. Also our room attendant was very accommodating . All staff with exception to one front desk clerk, was over the top with excellent customer service and couldn’t do enough for us!

I enjoyed the cruise and the amenities. Labadee was too cruise-line oriented.

$6 blackjack on the afternoon in you are in Labadee. Tables open at 3pm. The casino was dead. At Labadee lunch is from 11:30am to 1:30pm, go early. Food runs out, fellow passengers get a little irritated, and the workers deal with this everyday, so they are indifferent

Book a day at Palm Court Plantation & restaurant for $11 and swim there all day. There is a nice restaurant & it overlooks the water (you can see the cruise ship from there). I would definitely hang out there on my next visit to St. Kitts. Another cruiser said food was good. A paradise to relax.

Don't need to book a tour in San Juan just go to the "White" tram/trolley stop outside the pier for a free ride to Old San Juan and tour the forts, that will take all day, they are massive and for 5 bucks well worth it. US cell phone work and it's usually included in you plan.
