 We boarded within 15 minutes from the time we arrived at the pier. Smooth check in. We signed up for the cooking class before we went to our cabin. Our outside cabin was in the rear of the ship and every time the side thrusters were used our cabin vibrated, other than that our cabin was fine.The food on the main dinning room  was excellent for the most part, the fish was always  slightly overdone. Breakfast in the main dinning room was always served hot, no complaints. Lunch when we ate it, was at the Dive In, best burgers on any cruise ship. Our dinner waiter was spot on, even though he had quite a number of tables to take care of. Entertainment in the theater  was outstanding. The guitarist, Kevin, was excellent, but due to scheduling we didn't get to listen to him as much as we have liked. We thoroughly enjoyed Jamm the Piano Man. The excursions that we booked were pretty good. Our guide in San Juan was excellent,however the included restaurant was less than not good. We took the train ride in St kitts, good, but not outstanding. The Catamaran trip with lobster was great, we would definitely do it again on another cruise. Our disembarkation was quick and easy. All in all it was a great cruise except for the vibration in our cabin.
