Embarkation was quick and we were able to get right on the ship. We chose this cruise because we had cruised on this ship twice before and to join friends who had also cruised on this ship in the past. The itinerary was the same as most eastern Caribbean cruises but docked at San Juan at 2:00PM which suited us since we like to go for cappiccino coffee. The crew that we encountered were awesome! We did not, however see the captain or other officers at all. We only saw the cruise director when he was on stage. We had become accustomed to seeing these people around the ship and were very disappointed by their absence. The production crew put on an awesome production of Mama Mia, giving at least 3 sittings. The aqua show was excellent. The singer (godson of Sammy Davis Jr.) was also excellent. The pools were very cold and the whirlpools were barely warm. Water aerobics was a pleasant surprise but the temperature of the water was a deterrant. The selection of food in the Windjammer left a lot to be desired. It tasted okay. We returned two meals in the Silk restaurant-both due to not being able to chew the meat. Also there was Beef Stroganoff on the menu and it did not even resemble that dish. The food in the Park Cafe was very good. Trivia games were led primarily by a woman whose English was limited and, having to wear a face mask, she was extremely difficult to understand. Music throughout the ship was mediocre. The cabin, 6150, a balcony cabin. Lots of storage room. The cabin steward very quickly responded to every request we made. Disembarking was swift and smooth. As a result of the negatives, we have decided that we will no long cruise on this ship.
