Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Ths was our first cruise on X. We have cruised mostly on RCI. We booked Aqua 2 cabin 9101.

Food. The food and the service was very good in Blu every night and at breakfast. The tables are close together but it gives you a chance to talk to others if you like. My only issue is getting a second glass of wine if you ask they will get it for you. We had lunch at the buffet tons of choices.

We did 1 special rest. Qusine we were in a group of 12. This was a good way to do it since you can try more items.

Show. All the shows were very good. We never had to show up early we could always fine a good seat.

Pools. Again never had a problem finding 2 seats. The chairs had a blue cushion very comfortable on the upper deck chairs were just straps. On the 1 sea day people must have been up early trying to reserve the best seats. I was on deck around 9am on allot of the chairs there was a note from the pool butler saying your items havebeen moved. Great job guys. More

Boarding started at 10.30am. We arrived at 11.15am we were on deck at 11.21 withMimosa in hand. Rooms were ready around 1.15pm.Muster was at 7.45pm. Less

Cabin review:

Great location 5 cabins to the elevator. A large overhang from the pool deck. They did have 3 parties at night you could hear the music from above. But it didn't keep us awake since your so tried from the day. Jose was our cabin stewart no complaits.

Port and Shore Excursions

Culinary Tour

This was at the tour operators house 1500 feet in the air. Great views.You are helping out withthe prep work. We cooked tuna not my cup of tea but everyone else said it was great.


We did clear kayak I was hoping to see more fish . But all we saw was cement sculptures not very interesting.


We did buck island it was disappointing that about 90 percent of the corel was dead. So there was not allot of fish around.

Island tour

We weren't going to do anything but got talked into it. We were glad we did $15.Each 2.5 hour's. Drinks included. Well worth it. Go into town at the pier they wanted $20.each.

We walked into town about 1 mile or about 20 min walk. Then shopped shopped shopped.
