Totally dissatisfied!

Sail Date: January 05, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The room  was nice comfortable and in good location which was great and the cabin men took good care of us. Beyond that the rest is very much on the negative. Entertainment was marginal at best, additional entertainment areas were too small and not condusive to watching, one venue  BB King band definitely too loud for the small room they were playing in. The ventriloquist had only a few minutes at the end of his act which was entertaining the rest was terrible. The food was not what I had become accustomed to on cruise ships and the seating arrangements were poor and uninviting. Now for the biggest disappointment which were the excursions. The tour guides where more in a hurry to get you there and back then they were about providing scenery and educating you about the historical aspects of the islands. In particular one excursion (St. Thomas) was like getting on a van and speeding to the end which was only a shop to purchases things. Felt like I spent $49.00 just to be taken to a gift shop. In summary the worst cruise ever.
