Too Expensive, then charged extra fees for shore excursions even after pre-paying for trip. Toilets did not flush half the time, too slow to refill. Too many people coughing at end of trip. Shuttle provided from ship to airport, but not the other way. Could not take pictures on tours due to rain and fog. Tourist trap walking tours are a joke and over-priced for window shopping. Could not spend enough time on bus tours due to having to get back early so passengers would not have to miss happy hour or dinner. All shore excursions were over-priced, not worth it, except for jet boat ride, unless you like whale watching or history museums.

OK, If you like expensive fancy food and wine (seafood, duck, undercooked meat, purple lettuce salad). Don't expect any pizza, hot dogs, or bbq ribs. Be prepared to spend 7 hours a day eating and drinking (6 times a day). The ice cream and cookies were good. Use the exercise equipment to burn off all those calories.

excellent stateroom, except for the toilet not flushing half the time.

Too much eating and drinking 6 times a day. Good exercise equipment. Good instrumental groups, singers too loud. Internet service OK.

Only jet boat worth it, everything else overpriced.

About three times more expensive than other cruise lines. Not enough food choices. Too much time spent eating and drinking, not enough time for bus tours.
