Review summary

This cruise was for 14 days to the Southern Caribbean where we visited 8 different islands. This was the first time that we took a 14 day cruise and didn't know if I would like it or not. We loved it. Each island was unique in their own way. We had time to relax, shop, and take different tours as well as enjoying the ship. The tours were great and informative. I was told that this excursion is given every November. We would like to go next year if possible.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The Italian specialty restaurant had the best food. The lunch menu was included while dinner you had to pay a fee. The dinner was exceptional.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Bingo, swimming, shopping and shows. There was a special show for veterans. Everything was good except for bingo. They only played three games at a time and the price was forty dollars. The games were the easy type.

Entertainment

I had no children with me who would have used the services.

Service and Staff

We were the last table to be waited on every night for dinner. The waiter didn't know our names and would forget our orders. I was not pleased with him.The other staff were great.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was exceptional when it came to being clean and well maintained. It took a little time to get used to the layout of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was comfortable. There was a couch and a small table to use. It had two different bathrooms. One with a shower, toilet, and sink. The other one had a tub with a shower and sink. The steward kept the room exceptionally clean.

Ship tip

If you talk to the staff on a regular basis they might give you some free stuff.

This island only had small tents were residents tried to sell items. Some of the residents were very rude and ignorant. Their prices were expensive for tee shirts and souvenirs.

Oranjestad, Aruba

We took a tour to see and learn about the island and than went to Eagle Beach. The water was so clear that we were able to see sea animals passing by.

Willemstad, Curacao
