I'll give them credit that its hard to avoid out-of-stock issues. They are on a island.

However, we did not have a significant issue. I would say 98% as we ordered. It's a little hard for me to imagine being that brand specific in my requirements when traveling to another country. However, most brands were US and arrived exactly as the website identified them.

As for produce, our bag of apples and potatoes on this last trip were fine. Lettuce too as well as limes. Large tomatoes didn't last a day, but grape tomatoes lasted longer.

Beer, wine, tuna, bread, butter, eggs, snacks, chicken, cookies, etc, were all great. We fully provisioned for all breakfasts, most lunches and about 3 dinners.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
