Itinerary.

After 21 cruises on O, and having been part of the christening and inaugural sailings, I was amazed at the decline of this lovely ship. The staff was AWESOME. They worked so hard as it was obvious there was a reduced staff serving. For example, if you arrived a bit early to the specialty restaurants, they couldn't accommodate you yet the dining room was half empty. Obvious they adjusted to staffing.

The main dining room service was sooooo slow. Never saw the cruise director, John???

TV programming was years old.

This was the first cruise on O that I did not book a future cruise. I decided from what I saw that I need to open up my options, and now was the time.

Please O, come back to your original purpose and serving.

The food was not very good, and I'm usually easy to please. Knowing that Claudette Pepin is the Godmother, I am shocked.

Ended up getting off boat before its departure when the crew said that the waves would be quite high. They should NEVER have allowed that trip, but Destinations said nothing. Of course we had paid for it, but safety first. Another disappointed with O.

The botanical gardens were disappointing, but I just decided it was what Cuba is. The staff at the gardens were wonderful.
