Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
I didn’t like the specialty restaurants. Not worth the money. The buffet was ok. The food was cold and tasteless. Some of the food was good. You just have to find it.

Very comfortable bed. The size was good for two people. Small for more than two. Very clean.

Ship Tip

Bring magnetic hooks. They hang on the walls and work great for hanging bathing suits, landyards, etc.

We went to the fiesta lantina. The girls dancing was very entertaining. Loved shopping at the port. Loved walking around, the buildings are beautiful.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Loved the port but didn’t like the train ride. Showed a lot of poor housing which was depressing.

3 out of 5
Exhausting, only because we had to go back out to sea. Strong winds kept us on the ship a day longer. We had to carry our bags to the Bliss lounge, back to our rooms again, then back to line up. Not the ships fault just a lot of baggage back and forth.
