Sail Date: Apr 2023
Cabin: Concierge Class 2

Took the 10 day Caribbean cruise leaving Tampa on April 7, 2023.

Pros: Embarkation port of Tampa - a 1 1/2 hour drive from our home. Smaller ship, easier to navigate for one of us with mobility issues. Pleasant staff throughout. Clean concierge balcony stateroom that seemed updated in some respects (not others), unlike some previous reviews - no torn curtains or shower curtains. Bathroom seemed new. Rugs in good condition. We are senior travelers and liked that this ship attracts and caters to an older clientele. Very few children; many scooters and rollators. No water slides, rock climbing walls, etc. - a plus for us. Good bands in the Rendezvous Lounge, especially Hey Mama. Great ice creams at the buffet, tho lines were long at peak hours.

Pro and Con: Food - some quite good; some really sub-par. Had a t-bone lamb steak in the main dining room that couldn't be cut, even after staff tried with three different knives (sent back for a different entre); main dining room fish was overdone on more than one occasion. Other entres were good; none really excellent. Could usually find something we liked at the breakfast and lunch buffets tho we question an everyday section of "Asian" cuisine that only had Indian curries, no Chinese, Thai, or Japanese foods. Few people seemed to use this area. On other days, really huge sections of the buffet were taken up with vegetarian, gluten-free or sugar-free items; again these were used by only a few. It's a good idea to have these alternatives for those who need them but taking up a huge section deprives the great multitude of regular diners of more choices.
