Review summary

Wonderful trip and experience! We didn't have much experience but trip was smooth and enjoyable. Wish food and drink have some improvement on varieties and tasty. I didn't see a yoga room or dance room in gym. I wish to have some workout but would like in more private room but in public locations. Great room service and it is really appreciated for remembering to supply ice cube everyday since frig wasn't cool enough.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We only used those free restaurants. Not too impressive on varieties of drink and food. Freshness is good except apples and oranges. Soup was always too salty to our taste.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Didn't do much since we didn't intend because of busy schedule and cultural difference.

Ship tip

Wish we were supplied map of each port / island we travel and terminal location when arrived. Also a map of ship will be helpful as well. We are new to south Caribbean. We didn't have Internet access on those islands and couldn't print maps. A readable map will help us plan our own route and activities. Even I spent time before on-board but I still felt uncomfortable at each port without map especially with limited time.
