Excellent. Size just right for me and young adult daughter.

Ship tip

Be ready to have fun. Bring comfy shoes.

Ports of call

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

4 out of 5
Damage from hurricane very sad. I would skip excursion here and just go to town and beach. Give the island time to recover.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
What we saw was good. We were there from 8 am to 2 pm. Not enough time. Again I would skip tour and just walk the city.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Best port. Labadee traditions was very interesting and I would suggest this tour to anyone.
