Review summary

Over all I like the Southern Caribbean. I liked Bonaire the best. We went at the end of November and never needed a jacket. Till we got to the airport to leave in December. The ship had Fox news and CNBC. I was able to keep up with events. The EPIC, Getaway, and Escape had so much better food.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I have a mixed review of the food on this 10 day cruise. The specialty restaurants were a 5 Star. But the food was a let down. This cruise seemed to have a very limited menu. Every time we went to eat it just had the same food.

Our room was right sized. Everything was in its placed and served us well.

Ship tip

Go to breakfast early. On the Epic, Getaway, and Escape the Buffet Cooks each did 3 Omelets at once. On this ship the cooks each did 1 at a time which backed them up. Bacon was great and sausage was good. Waffles were slow. They only had 2 waffle machines.
