The ship is worn and dated. Except for a couple of crew members the crew was under whelming and didn't care about the service they provided. I believe prepaid gratuities go a long ways in the drop off in service that we saw this cruise. ... Read more

This was a family cruise and it was chosen based on itinerary. Embarkation lines were confusing. There were lines for frequent travelers, travelers with luggage, travelers with no luggage, and those that needed assistance. All lines ... Read more

We flew in late Friday and stayed at the San Juan Airport hotel. It was terrible hotel that should be condemned. It smelled bad and the rooms felt like prison cells. We woke up as quick as possible to get out of dodge and see if we could ... Read more
