Review SummaryThe Philipinos and Malaysian staff were outstanding - highly recommend.
This trip should be cancelled to Western Caribbean during December and January - weather dangerous and miserable. Made many cruises but rooming was incorrect from beginning, then table sittings incorrect to diabetics having to eat early, and with rain every day, there was nothing to do. As for Caribbean band on deck - one person on drum does not make Caribbean music - terrible disappointment. Food very good and room service excellent. Very expensive cruise for my worst one ever - having made at least 23 at far lesser fares.
Many, many people were disgusted and disappointed - tenders to shore should not have been made at all in one port - too dangerous - passenger sent to infirmary from banged head from high waves. This was a complete waste of my money for my family to get reaquainted and have a wonderful time.
I'm disabled and sailed H.A. times before, but no upgrade and indeed nothing but trouble with other rooms and seating arrangements. Took 2 days to get in touch with Maitre'D. I'm positive H.L. lines will receive many complaints - a very bad, boring and dangerous trip - complete waste of money.
