I go a long way back with this cruise ship, and I still sail annually on this one. From a troubling experience during their second sailing, to a consistent very good one for all my sailings going forward. Checked in at 10AM and didn't board until 10:20AM. Muster station check-in was flawless. When I inquired about getting a personal table, that got resolved without issue since I was a Diamond member.
My luggage didn't arrive until after 5pm, which was much later than anticipated. Luckily nothing was missing. I met my room steward, and he was very chill with everything. He cleaned my cabin and addressed my minimal inquiries without issue. He was probably the coolest room steward I ever dealt with. TV channels sucked, but then again, you don't go on a cruise just to watch TV. Luckily, I was able to spend 95% of time outside of my cabin!
At the main dining room dinner, I was served by two friendly waiters. I went to the main dining room 5 out of 7 times due to their menu offerings. Whenever I ate there for dinner, the food quality overall was very good (excellent on formal nights only). The maître D came by sometimes to check and make sure everything was fine, in which I confirmed with him. I went to the main dining room once for lunch, and that was fine as well.
Comfortable cabin, but the lifeboat view outside of the balcony was more than I expected. Also, I was across from the door where crew members enter and exit and work. Sometimes, you can hear noises from them overnight. I'll make sure NOT to get a balcony cabin like that again, and you should probably make sure too.
Perfect spot to relax, drink, and eat! Make sure to grab a spot as soon as possible, especially if the island is being shared with another ship!
Overrated and crowded port with pushy salespeople on the main street. Be mindful of your surroundings.
