First because it was scheduled to go to Cuba but that changed and we couldn't go to Cuba.
Another reason was the cost, it was a reasonable cost for 7 days.
Our first excursion was on Jamaica at Ocho Rios and was a fiasco. The disorganization to get our packages for the tender etc was terrible. We had to assemble in the theater and wait for our number to be called to collect our package and sticker number. Next we had to wait for our ticker number to be called to be escorted to the exit for the tender. We were very late for our cooking class but since we had booked through the cruise line, we were still able to 'do' it. It was not worth the money. The tender to shore was difficult to board bot at the dock and again back to the ship. The 'captain' of the tender did his best but it was difficult.
Room was a handicap room and was spacious. Unfortunately, there were problems with the toilet not flushing at times. We had to wait over an hour one morning for it to be fixed. After the MAJOR plumbing problem for the entire ship, (someone had flushed a tshirt) there was a smell that just would not go away. It was awful. The smell was all over the ship at different times.
Not a lot of shade. It will be nice once it is finished and the staff is more knowledgeable. Not a lot of help to get a ride if you have mobility issues.
