American cruising family states
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Food was very funky, we are from Chicago so our idea of Italian is very different then what actually is Italian in terms of meals. Pizza was horrible and that was all you really had for the kids because goose neck does not go over well with 10 and 13 year olds. We are used to buffets around the clock not so with this cruise line. You will search for a bit to find even one drink station More open to get water or ice tea. You will pass several closed off stations on your quest to find the open one( not joking only 1 open!). You will also learn that ice cream is only open for a short period each day miss that time slot and you are out of luck until the next day.
Smoking was annoying but tolerable as Europeans have a different idea of that discussing habit. But the main smoking hole was right off the main elevator on the main floor of the ship so everyone got to enjoy the heavy smoke on the way to each meal, show or trip to the casino.
The biggest issue we encountered was on day 2 when my 10 year old daughter pulled her suitcase out from under her bed and noticed something on the floor. The something that she was now holding with her fingers was a USED condom.
My shock was what happened after I brought this to the attention of the front desk.......ready.......Wait for it....... Nothing other than sorry this happened. I ask for a supervisor and was told none was available. Got another room steward who again gave me a hollow sorry and told me the room was going to be deep cleaned..... What ever that means. Guess they are not "deep cleaned" between cruises?
Whole thing was a viewed as a joke and treated as a joke by the cruise line. Not very funny from my standpoint nor from a parents when they have to give a very early sex education class to their youn daughter while on vacation. Less

Cabin was bigger than most outside cabins but see review above for issues on cleaness.
