Cabin:

Poor food. Poor service. Poor entertainment . Ship not as good as others in Marella Fleet.

Not enough staff on bars. Waiters stood around chatting. Waiters telling me it isn't my job to serve on this area. It's not my job to do something about empty water machine. Lack of hygiene. Snack Shack . One member of staff putting fruit juice on back of his hand to taste if it was strong enough. In front of me whilst I waited. A certain arrogance with shop staff, off putting.

Maintenance moving us whilst they did jobs. Drains on deck 9 being cleaned out next to our sun beds. Stinking drains.

Cabin Review

Clean well positioned. Noise from below decks. Lost sleep

Port Reviews

Montego Bay

Dirty ,pestered by locals. Overpriced

Samana and Cayo Levantado

Waste of time.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Only went to resort at port. Expensive shops

Grand Turk

Just stayed in resort near ship expensive shops

We had two 7 day back to back cruises on this ship. 7 to 14 days Colombia, Panama. Costa Rica. Did excursions in Panama and Colombia, well worth it. Incredibly hot, so take hats and umbrellas.

Jamaica is overpriced in shops. Colombia good deals. Fantastic leather goods.
