Review summary

I will never go on this ship again because of the balcony stateroom's poor layout. The rest of the ship is fine just showing its wear and tear.

Nothing special. No regular staff coming by the pool area to get drink orders. In the Comedy Club bar only 2 servers for a packed room. slow to remove empty glasses

Onboard Activities

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Service was lagging. Almost non existence servers taking drink orders at the pool. Bar servers were too few. Dining room service was slow.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was extremely clean. Carpets in main area show wear. Individual balcony room is clean however layout is beyond the pits.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Mattress is non existent. I am 5'4" and my feet hung off the bed. Beds cannot be separated. HATED not really having a true bathroom with just frosted doors to shower and toilet. Poor choice to have a couch semicircular and no table.

Ship tip

Book early for events that you can. See the Howl at the Moon show as well as Burn the floor. Careful who you book your room with because you will be literally sleeping with them.

The port itself is nice. The time we were allowed there was a joke. 6 am to noon. Stores didn't open until 9 or 10 am.

Castries, St. Lucia
