Good food selection, great evening entertainment. Would have preferred an additional stopping port, e.g., Granada or Trinidad. Did not approve of stopping at a good shopping port on a Sunday when stores are only open 4 hours (Aruba). This did not permit us to take a land tour and also shop. Additionally, the stores, I wished to shop at were not open on Sunday.
I was disappointed that the ACE Bridge group did not permit others to join in their games. I suggest, in the future, the ACE group only limit their morning lectures to their group and the afternoon/evening duplicate bridge sessions be open to their group first and then accommodate others on the ship that may want to play. If asked, they will say they did offer play to other walk-ins. However, the only walk-ins were permitted to play to fill out a table when there was enough room and equipment to have several other tables.
