Would not recommend taking this cruise unless you can speak and understand Spanish. Found some bartenders that didn’t speak English. The MC of several functions or events only spoke Spanish. People carry their own boom box and played annoying loud. When you ask a crew member to get it turned down they just stare at you. Beyond that the ports are awesome. The ship was clean and decorated for Christmas. Boarding was smooth. Had a balcony cabin and the cabin steward was the best ever. Took an ATV excursion in Bonaire and it was amazing. Signed up for a special dining package and the food and service was excellent. Attended most of the shows an they were well structured and entertaining. Recommend going to San Juan a day or two early to see old San Juan, it is well worth it. The cruise value was good overall. Just need to consider the language issue.
