A fabulous itinerary, but an aging vessel.

In the 'home' port of San Juan, unless you are hispanic, you are ignored!!  And, some of these very rude folks sail with the ship too!!  You spend a week being elbowed out of their way, and listening to their screaming in the hallways and on the elevators.  Such a putrid time on board.

The bathrooms couldn't be smaller if they tried!  The beds were horrible - just like sleeping on a board.  Had to ask for some softer relief.

Very difficult to read their daily 'newspaper'.  Everything haphazzardly placed - no organization.

Very loud bands in the Centrum nightly til after 12:30AM - good luck sleeping - even on the 8th. floor!!!

Food tried to be "fancy" - wound up only fair, most nights.  The worst Lobster I've ever had. (Actually, couldn't  eat it.)
