7 Day Western Caribbean

We were very disappointed in this cruise. The freestyle dining is not what it is made up to be. We often waited an hour and a half to eat. The ship is clean but old and the rooms are very small. It took two days to get the staff to move our beds together (we could have done this ourselves but were told to let them do it.) The ship was very rocky leaving Charleston all the way to the Keys. We did not feel informed on the ship. There were few instructions as to where the different dining areas were and how to access them. We were on for Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving dinner was planned for the evening that we would be in Key West, so that you would not be on the ship fo the main meal. No midnight buffet (a chocolate buffet was held one night). The internet cafe was in the smoking area and if you did not smoke you became seasick from the smell. We did meet new friends and had a great time with them but we will probably not use this ship again. Many many people complained about the amenities. The food was so-so. If this is your first cruise you will be happy. if it is your second or greater you will be dissatisfied with this ship. We were told that it will be put out of commission in a year or so. Our friends had a leaking toilet that took two days to fix. Could not get into the Caymans for rough seas and were allotted only 11.50$ each for port costs (come on!)

Entertainment was superb. Too bad that did not make up for the other problems. It took an hour and a half to get off the ship for Key West at 3 in the afternoon to return by 10 pm.
