Room Type: Balcony

I was mostly satisfied with the ship except for Anytime was far from that! Regardless when you came, it was a 20/30 minute wait or longer. And when one looked inside there were empty tables, but saved for those who made reservations. I thought that defeated the purpose of AnyTime dining. Food was OK throughout the ship, altho some of the items on the bread/pastry area were very dried out and obviously not fresh each day. Room was very adequate and well kept. Entertainment was so-so. too many comedians, not enough variety. Perhaps some revues based on the countries we were visiting would have been nice. Oh well, we had a good time anyway.

not much for seniors to do.

Not enough time in Cartegena or Jamaica tours to see anything for more than 10 minutes or so. Hurry, Hurry and wait on bus!


If going to AnyTime dining, call first thing in a.m. to get a reservation. Otherwise it is a looonnnnng wait.
