Review Summary

Cheerful, helpful staff. For three of our nine dinners at the main dining room we were given a beeper: once it did not work and we waited forty minutes. Food there was inconsistent: some great, a lot with minimal taste, only one dish was actually bad, "lump crab meat" was fake. Three theater programs were great (a magician, an impressionist/singer, an improv group) , three were really boring. Not enough programs on the last sea day. Freestyle cruising sounds good but you can't eat when you want because too many other people want to eat then too (only large parties can reserve the main dining room). You can't eat where you want because reservations there are already taken.

Ports Of Call

Samana, Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Enjoyed going to the tiny village on the four by four.
Don't Miss: Small villages, the blue stones mined only in the area.

Bridgetown, Barbados

Don't just take the shuttles to town: walk. Shuttles skip over an entire craft village just outside the port. It' a great place and because of the emphasis on going downtown and the presence of several cruise ships, hardly any other customers were there.
Don't Miss: Green Monkey reserve, the local crafts village near the dock.
