Review summary

Overall it was a good cruise. Nice size ship but some evidence of age such as faded old carpeting in various areas. Disappointed with quality of food and selections. Appeared that they only offer items such as escargo, filet, veal, lamb (except for curry one night, lobster in pay restaurants as these type things were not in the main restaurants. Had better food on Carnival cruises.

The cruise to the beach with Steel Drum band was nice. Beach was quite desolate. They need to provide more inside seating as the ride is very windy and we had to stand.

Bridgetown, Barbados
