Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2017
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Aft-View Extended Balcony

Good value, great ports to visit. The entertainment was non-existent, low budget! One good show "Epic Rock" great graphics, but the sound was unbearable. The other was 'Latin Nights" this show was OK, not bad one good show in 8 nights. Other activities in the pool area were very crowded, lounge chairs were never picked up so people had to dance on the edge, so it was difficult to walk across the pool area. The pools were very crowded I counted about 20 kids in the main pool and about12 adults at the serenity pool. The burgers, sandwiches at the deli, and the food at the Havana Bar were great. Food at the dining room and the Lido was not appealing and cold. Sunday evening I was diagnosed with food poisoning and had to spend 24 hours in my cabin, thus missing my favorite port "Grand Turk". St Kitts, well we did a 20 dollar tour of the Island just to see junked vehicles all over the place. San Juan was OK. My favorite place was "Amber Cove" this was our first visit, and we loved it. The staff on the ship were great, we were invited to the Diamond Card Captains Dinner, however he never made it to our table. The embarkation and debarkation went very smoothly.

Cabin Review

Aft-View Extended Balcony
Cabin 8N 6379

Nice cabin, was well maintained by cabin stewart. The balcony was kept clean except for the dirty glass, and the rusty metal on the back of the ship. Not very private, didn't take much to look into the other cabins to the sides. We kept our curtains closed much of the time. Our tv had a dark corner on the the bottom right, but we could live with that. We were told that they would do our room once a day, morning or evening. We chose mornings, first time we were given this option in over 27 cruises.
