Food and Dining
I have dietery restrictions, the chef in the buffet bent over backwards to accomadate me. I would have apperciated a few nutsw and seeds now and then. You lable sugar free, lable gluten free and I would apperciate it
Cabin / Stateroom
just didn't like the chilly dampness. The room stewart was awsome and always quick and accomadating.
Service and Staff
The chef, the Mader D in the main dinning room The instructor of Tia Chi
I didn't like the crafts, too elementery, would have been nice to have a little more advanced options.
Ship Quality
always felt cold and damp, I didn't like that part, made my joints ache
San Juan, Puerto Rico
the fort was just another fort and we don't shop anymore. The tours were way to expensive, how can another company do it for a fourth the cost?
Don't Miss: the beach and the sun.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
the beach, poor snorkeling. We didn't take the tour.
