Amazing, Near Perfect Cruise!

Sail Date: December 05, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

From the room service to the ship entertainment to the staff's entertainment, almost everything about the cruise was perfect. 


Entertainment - There was something for everyone. So much so that on the same pool deck where they were playing contemporary dance music, you'd see a senior citizen dancing. Big Smile


Food - This was the only thing that could have used significant improvement. Garden Cafe needs lots of improvements as far as selection goes. It seems most times you barely could put a plate together because of the types of foods they were serving. Most things just didnt go together. That and the taste left much to be desired. Other restaurants like O'Sheehans, Taste & Savor were up to par and even above.


Staff - From our room steward, Gede, to the staff throughout the ship, everyone was amazingly helpful, friendly and professional. 


Ports - St Thomas, Tortola and Nassau. All were really good places to stop and spend a few hours site-seeing. 


***HELPFUL HINTS - If you are wanting to save some money, you might want to take shore excursions on your own and not through cruises . com or any other website. You can find taxi's, excursions and other stuff outside of the websites and significantly lower prices (half price or less). 

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin is just for sleeping. Nothing more. There is enough to do outside of your cabin for this not to be a concern. Yes its small. Yes you may have to walk more than you want to, just to get to your room, but again, its just for sleeping.

Its a humongous ship! If you dont want to walk a mile or more every day, book a room near the center of the ship (near the elevators)
