Expectations not met

Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Embarkation: This moved at a snails pace. Computers were down, but information came too slowly. The PRIORITY guests were treated without status. I did not feel like a VIFP. It took more than 3 hours for us to check in and get on-board.

Cabin: Our Suite was great, but the bar was not well appointed. There was not even a bottle opener or ice present when we arrived. Our Steward was only mediocre, he never really did a good cleaning job, he just did a rush job. He did not greet us by name until the third day of our cruise.

Ports: Aruba: nice port, safe and clean. Walked and enjoyed a little shopping and the beach.

La Romana: Used taxi for tour of island. The DR is a beautiful island. The vendors at the local markets are PUSHY and overly AGGRESSIVE. Avoid them if possible.

Grand Turk: Did the beach, it was very relaxing. The coral is very rough; I recommend shoes, but great overall.

Dining Room: Dinner service was great; the service team was More kind, prompt, and courteous. The food was very good.

Entertainment: The shows: New Orleans and Beatles show were Awesome!

Musical entertainment: all venues were great

Comedy: Both comedians were fantastic Less
