Great itinerary, good service, older ship

Sail Date: April 23, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Dining and housekeeping staff were exceptional!!  Our cabin was spacious, but the pole in the middle of the room wasn't very well planned.  It was directly between the bed and the TV.  There are plenty of onboard activities, but not many that really interested us.  WiFi should be available at a more reasonable cost and with more websites available for free (e.g. weather, CNN news, etc.)  One of our excursions was cancelled and re-scheduled to a much earlier time, due to no fault of our own, and our our only notification about this was a voicemail on our cabin phone; which we happened to notice only by dumb luck.  Better communication should have been provided.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was spacious, but the furniture configuration should have been better thought-out due to the pole in the middle of the room. Fortunately, we brought our own shampoo and conditioner, as none was supplied by the ship.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
On the first port, there was total confusion as to where to exit the ship, with no signage and no staff available to ask questions. At the final disembarkation at San Juan, we were assigned a ridiculously early departure time, which was unnecessary.

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
More excursions should have been available, but were not. So you might miss the really good parts of the island.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Friars' Bay is a beautiful beach, and only a short taxi ride from the pier.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Roseau, Dominica
Bridgetown, Barbados
There is nothing to do in the immediate area of the pier. We saw very little of Barbados.


Bring your own shampoo and conditioner, wear comfortable shoes - there's a lot of walking around the ship, confirm your excursions early, as they may be changed with not much advance notice.
