Good Ship with okay food and terrible bar service

Sail Date: April 24, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

The ship was great. The promenade deck was awesome and there was plenty to do. There needed to be an adults only area. They said the solarium was for adults but it was not enforced. Now for the bad: The food was the worst I have ever experienced on a cruise. Most of us did not finish our meals in the dining room. They introduced the other restaurants that you have to pay a minimum of 25 per person a meal and let all other food go way down hill. The Captains Diner was terrible. The worst thing on the ship was bar service. The servers were great but there just was not enough of them. We waited 15min per drink (non-alcoholic or alcoholic) and sometimes up to 45min at a bar. We would not get our drinks at diner sometimes until our main course had arrived. Again, this is not on the servers themselves it was just a lack of them or the management of them. They worked hard and were very gracious.

Cabin / Stateroom Great service
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Waited an hour in line to get off the ship when we returned to the US. So, self assist disembark was from 6 to 7. We got in line at 6am and stood in line in the dining room for over an hour. They did not open the doors till 7am. Stupid

Service and Staff
The Crew was great and kind. There was just not enough of them or it was unorganized. They had one sever in the whole casino walking around at times. At the peak hours!
Food and Dining
Service for food was good. It was just bad food
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
George Town, Grand Cayman 7 Mile beach. Just grab a cab
Falmouth, Jamaica
Go to Dune River Falls, but get your own taxi. Cost us $45 for our own private tour and did not have to hold hands on the way up. We climed all over the place.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Everything is on your SeaPass here. This place is pretty cool. Get ready to get hassled in the shopping area.
