The cruise was very disappointing and left a lot to be desired. Port selection was an embarrassment. Food quality was very poor. Food selection was very limited. Entertainment was subpar. Boarding at the port was disorganized. I would never recommend this ship or particular cruise to anyone. Aside from Curaçao and Aruba the other ports would have been better not visited. The time in both aforementioned ports was not long enough and the ship could easily have stopped at another port rather than being at sea for two days straight. Not to mention passing right by several potential ports, Jamaica as an example. Aruba was extremely short and upon return to the ship the buffet closed a half hour after the curfew eliminating several passengers from being able to eat until 6pm very poor management. The midnight buffet was the same minuscule selection for the entire cruise which left the majority of passengers filing complaints. The Havana Club was a very nice perk until they decided to allow anyone to enter the club after 3pm everyday which brought in a load drunken crowd continuously. This cruise was so very poor on too many levels.
