My wife, 2 children and I took your cruise on the above dates.

The cleanness was good and food service was wonderful.  However, The entertainment was questionable for the following reasons;

1. As I understand the ship did not have a DJ until arrival to island of ST, Martenee and in the Bliss lounge, they had an Ipod playing random music furthermore, this was a Caribbean trip on the entire trip they provided 80 minutes or less of Spanish music even thus they had a reggae band.  The cruise had a lot of Spanish speaking people.  My wife and I found it frustrating, we were expecting something totally different.

2. The first day, I was personally offended by a bartender in which I had to called his supervisor and I waited for over 45 minutes to see him. He proceeded to make excuses of his subordinate behavior which truly irritated me and I walked away.    I witnessed at least three other similar incidents.


I recommend employee receive training in customer service 101.
