My husband and I took this cruise in June.  All in all it was a great experience except for a few things.  On our last cruse to Spain we got to know the cruise director and his staff very well.  They were always around and very friendly.  On this cruise we barely saw the cruise director and the staff, except for Evan, was not very personable.  Also, the cruise line lost thousands of dollars in drink revenue because of the short staffing of the bars.  We are not big drinkers, but even ordering one drink often took 30 minutes because of the lack of wait staff and bartenders.  The people who were working worked their butts off trying to serve everyone and they just couldn't do it!  Only one bartender at peak times made getting a drink really difficult.  It would also be nice to spend one more day in Bermuda and one less day at sea on the way home.  Overall the trip was great, but I prefer a smaller ship with less people.!

Not having a window is a little claustrophobic. Hoped to get upgrade but did not receive one.

Ship Tip

I do prefer smaller ships without so many people. This cruise is more like an extended "booze cruise"
