It was just much bigger, with far too many people

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The Pinnacle Grill was excellent, as always. The main dining room was hit and miss. Our breakfast and tea in our suite were always excellent.


5 out of 5
The string quartet was great to listen to after dinner. The Broadway show was awful. Many people walked out. The talent was superior, but the show was contrived.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room stewards, Agus and Subri were first class. Beyond any expectation. Our tea steward, Adi, was excellent, as well.

Ship Quality

Everything was excellent except the size

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
On this size of ship, there was no need to spend the money on a Deluxe Veranda Suite. The Superior Veranda Suite is excellent.

Megan's bay was wonderful. Blackbeard's Castle was tasteless and filled with tourist junk.
Don't Miss: Megan's Bay

The French side was filthy, with dirty homeless people and trash everywhere you looked. The Dutch side was clean.
