My mother and I cruised March 2007. we veered from our usual course of all-inclusive island vackages and thought it would be cool to try this.
Our stateroom was the oldest and we were next to a frat house. There was vomit outside out door even bfore the sail away! it got progressively worse from there. we didn't sleep all week. the food was eh and the entertainment lacked originality. Mike in the piano bar made the trip bearable. he was fantastic!
This is a party boat catering to springbreakers. but i take partial blame for not knowing that beforehand. it was definitely my first and last cruise.

booked a tour on my own with reyno tours. excellent tour. island is impoverished though. a bit too dirty for my taste.

Pros: a good way to island hop

Cons: everything other than the ports of call
