Anniversary Love Revitalization

Sail Date: June 11, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise and had no real expectations. However we were treated to one of the best vacations we have spent together in our 25 years! The service was outstanding! Our Stewarts always seemed to be one step ahead of our needs and made us feel like royality the entire week. Our stateroom had a balcony that was terriffic. We will never cruise without that option! Not only did we find it extremely relaxing , but quite romantic as well. To have a private balcony and listen to the ocean or view the full moon over the ocean cannot be be described but everyone should experience it at least once!The formal dinining staff was equally as good and always wanted to be certain that every detail met our expectations and then some. The daliy shows made for a great night of entertainment and were much better than we anticipated. The only down side we experienced was the unmanaged teenagers( especially in an adult only show) and one staffer at the 24 hour pizza bar. However the staff, the activities, and the land excursions far exceeded any distractions caused by the younger crowd. We already are looking to make plans for our next cruise adventure. We can hardly wait!

Pros: Service from the Stewarts and Formal Dining Staff

Cons: Too many unsupervised teenagers

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Spent the day shopping. Very pushy sales people. 99 steps was disappointment, the castle was a tourist trap. Need to take excursion to the beach at this port.
Bridgetown, Barbados
Take The catamaran to swim with the turtles. The crew has a great time and make you feel at ease immediately. Your drink is never empty and the snorkling and the ride are great! The turtle snorkle would have been geat except three other boats showed up and jumped in which made for far too many people in a small area.
Don't Miss: Catamaran Ride on the Tiami
Dominica
Went to Carib Indian Village. The tour guide was outstanding! The weather was not cooperative but we still enjoyed the ocean and the twin falls. The food was not good and the Indian dance was average at best. The Falls are a true sight to bestow.
Don't Miss: Twin Falls
