Review summary

Best food in 24 years of cruising, BUT, with that many Indian cooks, at least cut the amount of curry and Indian recepies. Good bread should be found for breackfast also, not only for dinner. It was the first cruise where "class differences" were to be noted aboard the ship and on land, in Coco Bay. Surprised by the huge number of Asians and Indians present, all at once switching from "Save" to "Spend"

Clean all the time and beautifully designed. Art in the staterooms corridors, too small and repetitive

Cabin / Stateroom

Initially we got a interior balcony, but the highly competent and courteous staff at Guest Services - Julia, Catalin, Maria - answered our plea for a oceanview balcony in St. Marteens. The room was clean all the time, ice in the bucket, robes, etc. Very impressed!

Ship tip

Stay away from "MyTime Dining" You would be passed around to a different corner of the restaurant each night...

Ports of call

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

There is still a lot to be done in terms of reconstruction after "Maria" and "Irma", but a lot less than in the French part, unfortunatelly...

San Juan, Puerto Rico

3 out of 5
It is unthinkable, sad, and a pitty to have 400 years of History, ethos and identity go to waste by not rebuilding after the hurricanes. In 2-3 years, Chinese or Russian "investors" will show up with cash, as they did in Jamaica and St. Thomas, and Puerto Rico will no longer be but another playground island

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

Laid down in the sun. Congrats, you have done a good job there!
