Review Summary

This was our 2nd ship of this class. It's a nice ship. The artwork was a little strange, but the rooms were clean, the staff was great - quickly responsive which is an awesome task on a ship that size! The food, while prepared attractively and presented with flourish, is only mediocre at best. The pool area was nice! This was the first time on a megaship where we did not have to fight to find lounge chairs poolside. We were so exhausted from the excursions and heat that we only made it to 3 of the nightly shows. The entertainment was good. We were unable to get tickets to the Ice Show at a time we could attend, which was a disappointment - we really enjoyed that show on the Explorer. We booked a Junior Suite, so we had a really nice-sized balcony and plenty of room. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of closet and storage space. The bathroom was smaller than I expected with a Junior Suite. On the Explorer, we had a standard balcony room and the bathrooms were about the same size.

Ports Of Call

Bridgetown, Barbados

We did the 4x4 off-road, which was nice. Our tour guide was very informative - and honest about Barbados' problems with drugs, alcohol and family disputes.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Gotta see both sides, French and Dutch. Each have their own charms!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
St. Thomas was not the madhouse I was led to expect, perhaps because we were not there in peak season. We took the ferry over to St.John's as I had read many times that St. John's was the most pristine of the U.S. Virgin Islands. We went to Trunk Beach which was absolutely beautiful with good snorkelling. Most of the island is National Park, and the beaches were so much cleaner than any on any other island we visited.
Don't Miss: Try Imperial Jewelers for awesome service and diamond creations!

Castries, St. Lucia

Don't Miss: Taking a trip on the Brig Unicorn

St. John's, Antigua

The island is gorgeous with beautiful beaches everywhere.
Don't Miss: You have to try the "Excellence" catamaran cruise around the entire island - awesome!
