We chose this cruise because it went to Aruba. We had to re route due to bad weather (I know that’s no ones fault). But then they take us to Nassau (the worst port in the carribean). So multiple passengers were upset with that choice.
On to the food... the main dining room was a disaster. The food was terrible. Not only was the food terrible, they rarely changed the menu throughout the 9 days. We stopped going and went upstairs to the windjammer.
The service in the dining room was just okay. They didn’t refill our water, never asked us if we wanted to order a different drink, didn’t clean off our table, and acted annoyed with us more than once. We also had a celebration planned and we told them about it and they completely ignored us.
The service in the windjammer was wonderful. We expressed how we had been treated in the dining room and they even brought us cake and champagne glasses so we could celebrate. The head waiter went out of his way to speak to us every night to make sure we enjoyed our dinner. We were very pleased with the windjammer staff and food.
The entertainment on this boat is boring. They have some contracted comedy shows that are okay. But the rest is awful. Their shows don’t have any meaning, it’s a bunch of random songs out together and called a show.
The daily activities were okay. The passengers were mostly 50+ so the game shows weren’t very exciting. They didn’t have many activities on the days at sea, they saved all the good ones for when everyone was tired on port days. Which made no sense.
Overall my family and I were not impressed with this boat. We have been on several cruises and this has been our worst experience.
Don’t set your heart on your destinations because they could change them at the drop of a hat!
Cabin was nice. The mattresses are awful. We all had back pain.
