Returned from Tampa after 13 day cruising the Caribbean and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Long flight from UK so enjoyed chilling out on first three sea days. Good table in Minstral with very attentive service from Mckoy and Adelyn. Could not fault any of crew who were all very efficient and friendly. Nightly theatre acts were good but not keen on production nights. Disappointed no films were shown on deck at night as this was a new feature on this ship. Also no deck barbecue. Noticeable cost cutting since last cruise but food of good quality with all evening meals enjoyable. Also, my husband was please to see authentic indian curry in Windjammer every day. Very disappointed with the new pub, no atmosphere and more like a courtroom than an english pub. Seating was awful and needs redesigning.

Chose to prepay premium package after given incorrect information by R.C. shore contact precruise misinformed me that not possible to pay for package once on the ship which left no option but to pay up front. This was a huge mistake as I had nowhere near the amount to break even and would not take up this package in the future. Cocktails $11.80, spirit mixers $8.26 with beer similar price which I feel is a little excessive.

Unfortunately, the shore team do not match up to the service on board the ship, with my onboard account charged twice to my credit card on my return. with a denial and no apology from R.C.I even after my bank confirmed this and retrieved the money. Still waiting for reply to my email after a week.

Port Reviews


enjoyable stop


ok for price paid but did not see best of the island.

St. Lucia

walked into the town but weather was bad so quickly returned to terminal shops and then ship.


absolutely chaotic at quay side. No organisation with two cruise lines mixed up outside terminal with people sent in all directions for buses. Tour was ok but no nice beaches seen again on this trip. Seems as though mansions have taken over beachfronts from what I have heard on my return
