Cruise was Great but food disappointing

Sail Date: December 14, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The food on board was disappointing.  Dining room meals were Very good, but the open dining buffet was not very appealing.   "Chops" the specialty restaurant was superb and we truly like that meal and would probably eat at more specialty restaurants in the future..  We were very glad we took our own water purification system because getting drinkable water for our water bottle was next to impossible and then it had a bad taste.  The activities and amenities were good and the excursion that were offered were very nice. All in all I enjoyed the cruise very much and would recommend it to others.

Falmouth, Jamaica
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Loved this island. if you want smooth protected water go to right. There are more kid things to do. If you want a very of the Ocean, stay left and go all the way to the end.
