Would not recommend. Ship was clean and rooms were nice but woefully understaffed. Waited endlessly at dinner and for drinks. Tables around pool were left with trash and drink glasses for hours. Food portions at dinner were ridiculously small. Extra hidden charges in main dining room for lobster. Beverage backage was terrible. $9 was the maximum allowed per drink and if you ordered a drink that was over the $9; they didn't charge you the difference; they charged the whole price. Extra charges for Spin classes in gym. They offered a tour of the ship's kitchen for $150 pp. Are you kidding me????? Beverage package was also not valid on the ship's own private island Half Moon Cay. Had to pay full price. Buffet at Half Moon Cay was included but the food was horrible. Long lines for everything. The ports were ok; not great but ok. The beach at Half Moon Cay was the nicest. Not a good value for the money. Don't waste your money on this cruise line. Go with Celebrity.

10 day cruise on Konigsdam departing FT. Lauderale 2/3/19-2/13/19
