If you expect to have the kind of food service you experience from Royal Caribbean Cruises, then do not come onboard because it is not about the food, it is about having a great time on board. This Old Ship packs great entertainment, we were never bored, Live music every day, Rock, Disco, Salsa, Calypso, Live DJ, Theater entertainment, Comedy, all going at the same time!! Also, the stores all of them had great offers. At time the lines to eat were very long, but who cares, Food is Food!! At evening eating at the main dinning room, no complaints, I asked for 2 Lobsters and was served, also you can ask for extra steaks, or change your food and they will bring it. All cooked to perfection. The ports: Barbados- Boring, watch out they do not have very good tour operators and you can barely see the beaches/coast they are all blocked by buildings. All the other Islands were great. watch out for St Martin, very expensive. Bottom line, if it is food and sleeping you are looking for, well try another cruise. Also, the residents from Puerto Rico on this ship can really party and keep the fun and happy atmosphere going all night until the early morning. Great Latin feel and my god Salsa dancing was great.

Boarding was well organised and simple There was lunch available whilst we waited for our cabin to be available The cabin has a double bed – it was a decent size Air con that you can alter in the cabin, beach and bath towels provided Shower en suite, liquid shower gel and hair shampoo, no hair conditioner, a small bar of hand soap There is not an automatic availability of a hair-drier, if your statesman has a spare one you can have one if he doesn't you can't! The room safe is locked with a card with a magnetic strip This doesn't have to be a credit card. Loyalty card would do You need a lanyard holder to clip your sail and sign card onto this acts as your payment/ID card I bought the bottomless bubbles package about $7 a day, For unlimited soft drinks, you have to buy it for the week of the cruise, for me it was worth it They also do a wine package, this works out a bit cheaper for wine in the evenings Loads of food, so many different options available Mongolian wok was very tasty When you are organising trips off the island be aware that the locals know the prices that the ship charges and price themselves accordingly, so you have to haggle a bit to get the prices down Never pay until you are back to the ship Make sure you take something warm to wear in the evenings as inside the boat it is quite cool particularly in the evenings. There were 2 elegant nights on the ship so a nice dress and shirt and trousers for the guys The white night was in the nightclub so not mandatory or really needed Breakfast could be eaten buffet style in the lido restaurant you could sit inside or outside or served in the imagination restaurant inside Sukesh is a table magician He is absolutely amazing, he is gentle and fantastic with his tricks you have to make sure you see him whilst on the cruise There was a welcome aboard show , the day before we left completely focussed on the people who embarked at Puerto Rico The people who boarded at Barbados did not get a show like it when they boarded Comedians were very funny if you understand American humour Medical centre I popped down to see the facilities, and had a chat to the staff - it was very interesting and reassuring They can do all things a normal ER can do, plus minor surgery Spa on the ship This was disappointing On the first day we went for the tour and was told it wasn't happening We went for a seminar on detoxification this was very interesting, but whilst we were waiting we listened to the conversations happening at the reception desk - a guest was being told they couldn't help as no one was on duty who spoke Spanish- poor I felt We went to listen to a seminar about pain relief and we were told it wasn't happening because they were too busy So what do I think about the spa? A little elitist and not interested in anyone if they were not spending money This I find judgemental and disappointing I don't spend my money when I feel that someone thinks I am not worth bothering about Read Less

This cruise line does not cater for british passenger out of around 3000 passenger there were only 6 british the rest porta ricans very loud and rude this ship was quite small compared to others food was quite good with lots of choice cabins very small. Ship was clean but the other guest were very untidy. Entertainment was poor only seen one show the whole cruise a few shops but very over priced. Dont book trip with ship very over priced again can get much cheaper inport .Suggest getting drinks package even though very expensive but the drinks are on ship.The main restaurants were very nice staff very friendly but the officers on the ship talk to them like dirt in view of guest seen one officer make a girl cry.All in all wont travel carnival again .Did not like embarkation process took a long time also disembarkation. Lots of silly rules. Read Less
