We were very impressed with this cruise. We were thoroughly spoiled and pampered! The ship was only two years old. It looked new and sleek, and was very clean. There were always people cleaning and polishing. This was also one of the biggest ships and was very smooth, so that no one felt sea sick, despite being prone to carsickness. You could hardly tell you were on the water. Our room had a balcony and it was really cool to watch leaving and entering ports from your own room.

The food was excellent and the waiters were great (see below). The Stewards were also as great as the Waiters, very kind, respectful and helpful. It was wonderful to have bed made in the morning and my mess straightened up! Then at night he would turn the bed down again and put mints on the pillows! One night he made a towel animals for the kids (ages 6 & 10). They were thrilled!

Overall, this was an excellent vacation and I'm sorry for it to end. The only good thing about it ending is, my waisteline couldn't take anymore of that delicious food!

I was not thrilled with this island. The water is too cloudy near the port to snorkel and the locals were constantly trying to sell you something, which became quite annoying.

Don't Miss: The Skyride is a reasonable price and offers beautiful views of the island, a short nature walk and bird show, plus the ride is fun for the kids.

The island is set up as nicely as the ship. Big pavillions under which to each the barbeque lunch out of the sun, delicious variety of food and enough (free) loungers for everyone (unlike in St. Maarten, where everyone was trying to sell you a lounger).
Don't Miss: The snorkelling is so cool: tons of beautiful, colorful fish.

Pros: Being pampered.

Cons: There we no major problems.
