Cruise part was fine. The main dining experience was not satisfactory at all! First seating was terrible. We had nine people at a table for eight, located in middle area. You couldn't get between tables. The big dissatisfaction was I booked this cruise nearly 18 months ago, with seating to be at large table! Food was not up to expectations (from previous cruises on RCL) First time we did not have a wine steward. That left our assistant waiter with the job. Not his strong suit. 

Specialty dining was fine, as was the Wind jammer buffet. Lastly the dress up factor was not enforced in main dining room. Formal night actually had people show up in shorts!

Don't due a cruise that lands there on Sunday, as the town was closed! (as is with all Caribbean Islands)
