A very enjoyable cruise.  The staff service was excellent.  The food at Le Bistro and Cagney's was very good.  The Illusionarium dinner and magic show was awesome.  Did not care for Moderno or La Cucina restaurants.  Their in board iConcierge app doesn't work well.  Waste of $.   Above all, I think that the staff made it the most enjoyable.  


Love, St. Lucia and St. Kitts!!!!  Did not like Barbados.  Found the people rude.  All the other ports, the friendliness of the people was wonderful and informative.  Again the two best were St. Lucia and St. Kitts.  


opportunities:  coffee was not that good.  They don't use fresh eggs, unless you specifically request them. And when in port, no coffee service provided in several areas, only when at sea?   The food at the specialty restaurants was not that good, except for the two mentioned above.   I will not do th dining package again. Not enough smoking areas, you had crowds of people in Just the three that were available.  The Cigar Lounge is terrible, tiny and not enough ventilation.  I will say that Carnival's cigar lounge was far better.  It even had a 3piece Jazz band playing.  

Cabin / Stateroom
Had to get up a couple of times during the night to lower the air conditioner. It would not stay on consistently. No drinking water provided in the cabin fridge. Other than that it was a normal balcony cabin.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Loved St. Lucia and St. Kitts. Did NOT enjoy Barbados. Wished we could have spent more time Curaçao, skip Barbados.
Onboard Activities
Illusionarium was very good. Legally blonde was awful. The theater seats are very uncomfortable
Service and Staff
Very good customer service.
Food and Dining
Le bistro and Cagneys were good. I would not do the dining package again though.


Next time, I will do these, instead of some of the specialty restaurants.
