Review summary

Crise was okay, but would not book again if a large group is taking over ship like this one.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
It was easy getting on with the Black card status, but that is only the beginning.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Was told you could buy drink vouchers on board instead of drink packages which are over priced. Could not on this cruise! Asked for early dining, but received late. Was told no one other than the Vegan group had early, they had a contract for ALL dining rooms for the first seating. People making reservations should be told that! Vegans had their own Buffet that other people could not eat at, but over 50% of the Vegans were not Vegans and ate at the regular buffet that had been reduced in size. Speciality restaurants were good, but it is an additional expense.

Onboard Activities

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Entertainment was curtailed due to Vegan meetings. But the 7:00 pm (only evening show) was good. Interesting in the bars they all seem to take break at 6 pm when the first dinner seating was.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The staterooms are small like hotel rooms in large cities but the balcony really eapands it. There was plenty of storage room in the cabin.

Ship tip

If 2 or 3 levels up or down, take the stairs.

Miami, Florida

2 out of 5

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

If not doing an excursion on l y shopping areas to walk around. Maybe if it was back to 100% from hurricane may be better.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

4 out of 5
Did the rainforest hike. Was very good.

Fort-De-France, Martinique

3 out of 5
Did train ride, was fun, but long ride to get there.

Bridgetown, Barbados

4 out of 5
Better walking area of town and beach.

Pointe-A-Pitre, Guadeloupe

4 out of 5
Did waterfall hike. Wished we had more time. Early time for leaving port makes it hard to see much.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Crazy crude getting off ship.
