Nice ship with good ports of call

Sail Date: December 01, 2010

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Check in and boarding were fast and easy. Debarkation took a great deal longer but with customs that can't be helped. The food onboard was excellent. If you are a coffee drinker I would recommend buying the coffee plan for $25 the day you board because the free coffee offered is awful. This entitles you to the premium coffees on the ship for the week. The adults only sanctuary pool and spa are wonderful. If you plan to take excursions during the cruise do your homework and read reviews. Two of the friends I was travelling with were mobility impaired so we researched all the excursions prior to boarding and called the information line to ask questions. Even after doing that and being assured that one beach excursion we signed up for in St. Lucia would not be a problem for someone who had difficulty walking we found that the outing was dangerous after we had left for it(required stepping from one rocking boat to another rocking boat in deep water, jumping off the end of the boat into water where sharp rocks covered the sand, etc.). We spoke to the excursions desk about this and they did not realize the excursion called for some level of agility. I really find this unacceptable - this is a safety issue where someone could have been injured. The beach outing on Antigua was excellent and I recommend that. I would avoid the open jeep excursion in Tortola. It's expensive, the tour guides do not know their island history and the cars are not even jeeps (we were in enclosed trackers instead).

Pros: Great food, movies under the stars

Cons: The excursions desk does not know much about the trips their passengers pay for
