Review Summary

Always have a great time aboard, overall great cruise, but they can improve some things.  Let me start out by saying I hate people that complain about everything, and there were some people, who complained about everything.  Listen, it's  not the Ritz Carlton, so don't expect it to be.  We stayed in cabin 11022 mini suite, cabin steward was awesome as usual. itinerary was great, don't under estimate tortola, probably the nicest destination on cruise.   The local people were the nicest and the island is aesthetically the best.   

           The main dining rooms are a joke, horrific food and worst service, we stayed and dined mostly at specialty restaurants where the food and service were both excellent.  We did the buffet a couple of nights not great.  The buffet for breakfast was great if you ate at the great outdoors(hidden Gem  on this ship).

          Like I said we are partial to this boat, food and service in MDR need to be improved, but we had a great time.
