Boring, even for a senior, food not that impressive.

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Signature Suite with Verandah

The lido market was like golden corral. Dining room had serious lag between courses and slightly better food. Pay extra restaurants were not worth the money. Overall very disappointed in food and lack of activities. Most activities were centered around getting you to spend more money on something. Not even dance dg in evenings. Clean cabin and friendly shore excursions. We would not go again on this ship even though our cabin stewards were great. They anticipated our needs, leaving umbrellas on days rain was expected for shore days, binoculars, extra towels, etc. Difficult to get snacks after 10pm, we had to get room service and pay extra for soda even with drink plan. Good thing they had movies for our room because there isn't much else to do. Events at world stage filled up 1\2 hour before show. They needed more shows and dg dance clubs, even for us old folks.

Signature Suite with Verandah

Clean and larger than I expected. Stewards were great.

Port Reviews

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Quick and organized.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Not labeled well.

San Juan

You don't need to buy an excursion. Just walk up the hill to historic sites.

Half Moon Cay
