Review summary

Great time in the sun. Loved the retreat pool on the ship and the ports of call. Found the days at sea very restful and enjoyed watching the sea go by. I was disappointed that there were no destination experts on this cruise.

Food and Dining

Food on this cruise was very disappointing. the dinning room service was very good but the food was nothing special and the horizon court was very poor quality. Alfredo's restaurant was exceptionally good and the trident grill was also very good.

This was a great way to start our cruise. We relaxed on the beach and snorkled in the beautiful waters. The food served us was convenient and good.

We took a local taxi to a snorkeling beach and spent a wonderful time on coke beach. We did not take advantage of Klien Bonaire but wish we had.

Very clean and beautiful port and city. I was very surprised at how clean well maintained Curacao was. Would have liked to have spent more time there.
