Review summary

We really enjoyed our time on the ship. The Ports of call were great, the food was outstanding, the dining room service was excellent, our stateroom was great, our cabin steward looked after most of our needs and the overall cleanliness of the ship was great. The challenges we experienced were with the overall age of the ship, although it is supposed to be new it really appeared quite dated for a new ship. The dining room breakfasts were not very good as a result of the service provided, the Bar/beverage serving staff were nowhere to be found on deck, in the Theatre or even in some of the lounge/bar area. The tab would have been much greater had they been even somewhat available or attentive. The overall entertainment on the ship was sorrowly lacking...the Night Club did not open until midnight or later and the other options until then were the same old cruise shtick...kinda corny!

We chose to go to the private beach and it was packed, way too many people and then it poured and everyone wanted to get back on the tenders at the same time...shop early at the open air market...great Island art!
