Sail Date: Mar 2019

We chose this cruise along with 12 others to celebrate a 50 year birthday, several had not cruised but, I had. We were supposed to get off at a private island but, we did not - said weather was bad and more coming, nothing but sun that day, the bottom line is they hit a reef and then we were penalized. Spoke with several other people on ship one couple had been several times and have failed to see private island once -

The ship was crowded and not enough people to handle the crowd especially at pool level and since we had to ride around 2 days in the ocean. Bartenders were short and rude -

Guest Services didn't want to hear it and we had no compensation for our loss.
