Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Inside

This cruise was doomed from the start. On the first day, the boat went dead in the water, all electricity went out, no engine. No explanation, nothing said. The next day, the captain informed the guests that the currents, waves and wind would cause us an extra day at sea and also the new timing would cause us to bypass our first port, Aruba. We were also delayed several hours arriving to Grenada, putting us in around 5PM on a Sunday. Everything was closed, excursions were cancelled and it was basically a gratuitous non stop.

It was announced that there were several sick crew members so hand washing and sanitizing was pushed at every announcement, not a bad thing. Unfortunately, the absence of crew members put pressure on the remaining servers and they were rushed, inattentive at the pool and basically gave the type of service that happens when a restaurant is short handed.

The best part of the cruise was Sheryl McEwan's bridge instruction. She had beginner and intermediate lessons with organized play in the afternoons of the days at sea. She and her assistant, Keith, were a delight.

Cabin Review

Inside

Cabin was fine. What you would expect for an inside cabin. Shower was small, storage was good.
