Very nice cruise

Sail Date: February 18, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

I was very pleased with the cruise. The food in the restaurants was very good, but the buffets were only mediocre at best. Very friendly and professional staff. The excursion to Maegan's Beach was no more than a taxi ride to and from the beach and was even more expensive, there were no chairs available, and the beach was dirty and overcrowded that day. Our view was partially blocked by a lifeboat, and I would definitely choose a stateroom with a balcony on another cruise.

Pros: The weather, promenade deck, friendly, professional staff and the Coral Restaurant, especially waiters Fernando and Joel.

Cons: The buffet food was mediocre, and the buffet food at Eleuthera Island was terrible. In general you need more quality vegetarian protein options like hummus, soy products or seitan, etc.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We enjoyed shopping in the town. We needed to spend more than one day in this port, in my opinion.
Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)
The beach and water were a delight. The food in the buffet was terrible.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
We were in port on a holiday, and most shops were closed. Another day should have been chosen for this visit.
