Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Buffet was difficult due to there not being any trays to help transport plates and drinks to a table. The main dining rooms offered great selections to choose from including desserts!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Some activities had a fee but there was no notice ahead of time what the fees would be, making it hard to budget. Also no movie theater on board--movies were featured on in room TV but there was no guide to list times movies would be shown.

Carlos Leal, Piano Man was excellent and enjoyed his playing and singing. Also enjoyed the Showman Band when they did a tribute to Big Band Era.

Children's Programs

No children were with us on this cruise!

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Most staff were really pleasant. There was one staff member who would not help in regards to a question of a ferry between St Kitts and Nevis.

Ship Quality

By day 3, finally got the layout so as not to have to walk thru the casino.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Missed having an alternative seating other than the beds such as a sofa! Plus I was under the impression that the cabin was supposed to have an unobsructed oceanview---guess I was totally wrong on this count!!

Ship tip

If you prefer a smaller ship, the Jade is perfect.
