Review summary

Had so many problems and made so many visits to guest services that I begged to get off instead of returning for back to back. Began with I was supposed to have one free option Drink package however this caused many arguments and frustrations because my information did not show this on my reservations. Even though they had charged me for gratuities fir the drink package

Enjoyed buffet and learned from newsletter that Moderno was complimentary for breakfast. Little far to walk but enjoyed more than buffet. Much more relaxing beginning to my day

Enjoyed various activities in Atrium much more on this and the back to back cruise. Forgot the same two venues would be on each leg. Rock of ages and burn the floor. Rock of ages was too long and quite weird. Burn the floor was very good but the intro movie was far far too long

Service and Staff

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
I kept same solo cabin for back to back cruises my stewardess was very nice and helpful. The size was adequate for me. Gave me less room to clutter. On one of the last days of second cruise someone I met in solo lounge showed me the solo cruise newsletter. It showed times and events and who was in charge fir the solo events. I Definitely Believe this newsletter should have been placed On My Bed Just As The Daily Ship Newsletter. I was told same info was in newsletter but How Re you supposed to figure that out (if you do not know it is there) with all the other information in the daily newsletter. Still believe that the Solo Information Shoe Be Given yo you same day and in same way as the other. The solo information was inserted in slots on wall of solo lounge just like the other advertisements

Ship tip

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

We were the fourth ship from dock. That just made going to excursions terribly long walk uncovered in extreme heat to get ashore. The busses we waited on Never came. They seemed to all come toward our ship and get full before they reached us. In the future I will not get off ship in Nassau

San Juan, Puerto Rico
