Tater salad and a floating Greyhound bus

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
A big floating Greyhound bus, dirty and dengy. The food was terrible, People on here saying its good must think McDonald's is gourmet.. the pizza was like cardboard, the burgers seemed like soy. The dining room dinners were the worst. I'd refuse to pay for that slop at a truck stop let alone a place that makes you wear a collared shirt to sit down. I personally told the maitre d that it was a joke to make people even wear a shirt to eat that cold slop. The wait staff act just like a people who know they wont be tipped, slow, rude and careless.. The only thing on the ship that looks to be made fresh was the potato salad. I highly recommend it.lol.

The serenity deck was conveniently located next to the ships horn and the annoying lido deck. So if your idea of relaxing is listening to a bad version of the macarena and bearing the 150 decimal horn be my guest. Then theirs Carl with a K, he'll come over the intercom every 30 minutes to tell you to come to one sales pitch or another More or to remind you those overpriced excursions you can buy for half price right outside the ports are almost sold out. I felt like i was in a week long time share sells pitch.

the gym is staffed with more people then guest using the equipment, but try asking them for help or knowledge of the equipment, their useless. The room service is a crap shoot whither it will come or not. The guest services staff dont seem to speak or understand english very well. overall just lower your expectations, bring some beef jerky, and look forward to the destinations.. Because this thing is just like a greyhound bus. Transportation and thats it. Some advice.#1 The turtle tour in Barbados can be had for nothing, just bring a snorkel and grab a cab to the nearest beach, thats where they are feeding the turtles. #2 "self assist" your luggage in debarkation, or you'll be waiting till doomsday, otherwise you can be off before 8;30 am and see all of old San Juan before noon...#3 in st.kitts do not take the tour with DUke of Earl... Good luck and enjoy the "tater salad" Less

Cabin review: 8D Balcony

the "State room with balcony" was the smallest ive ever experienced, and the decor and carpet remind me of my grandmothers house 20 years ago. The bathrooms remind me of those found on a greyhound bus with thinner toilet paper.
