TV only had news channels. Other channels were either about ship or old taped shows. Not like other ships Hardly anything going on by pool. Maybe a game or singer for about an hour or so. Needs to have at least Caribbean music to keep people in the mood. Very boring Buffet and bbq pretty much had the same thing everyday. Just changed meat Crew was friendly but didn not really interact with people Bar tenders were very friendly and fun Our steward was excellent and went out of his way to help Public bathroom s could have been cleaned more often I found the excursions were reasonable. Would have liked more time in St Thomas The outdoor pools and hot tub were clean as was the whole ship As a whole it was a nice cruise to beautiful ports. Just lacking in some areas. It was a good value for ten days

Lacking in some areas
