Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was fuel. Often times, Windjammer had a hard time keeping food replenished at all meals. Dining room food was never hot and a few dishes were not edible . Sole dinner and lobster dinner were terrible.

Onboard Activities

Cabin / Stateroom

Bathroom dirty. We didn't put anything in medicine cabinets. Toiletries include bulk shampoo and the cheapest bar of soap you can buy. Terrible scent. Room as are dated even after the 'upgrade

Ship tip

Find a newer ship. Puerto Rico is not ready for visitors yet so not a great port to leave from right now.
