Itinerary: Caribbean

We chose a Caribbean Cruise so our opinion of the islands does not involve the cruise liner, however, the cruise company is responsible for the onboard activities. Out of fourteen nights cruising we had five nights of different theatre entertainment. As the ship had a high percentage of passengers in the middle to elderly age group, it was very sad that the cruise director "Mercedes" catered mainly for the teens with discos. After dinner we and many others had to entertain ourselves in the casino then go to bed, which we did by 2230hr nightly and this on a cruise ! ! The windjammer cafe closed at 2115hr nightly so no late night cuppa and biscuit. The restaurant ran out of morning orange juice, raisin bran, marmalade and on several occassions we had to wait twenty to thirty minutes for butter. I also on five occassions received lipstick smeared mugs. Our second week of a back to back cruise increased in volume of passengers by probably about five to six hundred passengers, thus causing the shortages in food, which the cruise company should have been prepared for. This being our seventh cruise it is the only one that we would rate disappointing.
