Review summary

Everything about this cruise was great from the time we got in the Security Line to the time we went out through Customs on the return. The Windjammer Cafe did not do so well, the staff were not there to help or provide drinks, the food was not labeled for those needing special needs like Gluten Free. The meats at the carving station were mostly overcooked and it closed at 9 p.m.

Food and Dining

My Time Dining was the way to go, no set time unless you make a reservation. Windjammer is only good for salad and finger food.

Onboard Activities

Service and Staff

State Room Attendant Ketut always went out of his way to meet our needs. Isreal and Centano Pool Bar Servers were great. Cypriani and Diane in the My Time Dining Room were excellent.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

Electrical outlets were the only issue other than being in the dark all the time, but we did not spend much time in the room.

Coco Loco Tour Bus saved this excursion, ending at the beach where we rented a jet ski (very reasonable).

Willemstad, Curacao

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Great Beaches 7 Mile which is no longer 7 miles long, you will have to visit to find out why.
