Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship was very nice, lots to do, and my kids loved using the interactive boards by the elevators to see what there was to do at any given time. The food was average, nothing terrible, but nothing great.  The excursions are way overpriced, we did a couple of them, but we also ventured out on our own and saved a lot of money doing the same things the cruise line offered, but at a much better price.  The crew was terrific, all very nice, very friendly, and happy.  A joy to be there.

Cabin / Stateroom
it was just as expected, small but fine for the amount of time spent in it
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
way too pricy, cost as much for them as the cruise, probably more! the trip to buck island was ok, but nothing worth what it cost
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
my teens enjoyed the programs very much
not enough night-time shows. the comedians were funny, and the ice show was good, but the singing stuff was average at best
Service and Staff
loved the crew, the dining room staff was terrific, and the cabin steward was wonderful
Food and Dining
it was fine, but nothing special
San Juan, Puerto Rico
great free trolley takes you around old san juan
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
bring your own snorkel and mask if you plan to go on your own.. there's a great reef off friar's beach we visited, and we rented the equipment there, which was fine
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Fort-De-France, Martinique
took the city bus to the jardin balatas, which saved us a lot of money, and was very easy, the garden itself was GORGEOUS!
Bridgetown, Barbados
You have to swim with the sea turtles, we did this on our own by taking a cab to a nearby beach and having the locals take us out on their boat, great time, again wish i had my own snorkel!
