It Could Have Been Better

Sail Date: July 16, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall, if you prefer a cruise with a lot of noise and partying that seemed to encourage drinking then this was the cruise for you. My husband and I decided to take advantage of the excursions on land at each port .
The availability of chairs on the lido deck was okay except it was so crowded.
The fact that we had a stateroom with a balcony was our saving grace.
The one huge problem we had was at the last port of call in Aruba where the ships's engine had a problem and we were stuck in Aruba for an additional day. Because we had to be back in a timely fashion we were forced to disembark the ship in Aruba, call the airlines and make our own flight arrangements back to the states and get to the airport on our own .

Pros: The stateroom and the cabin steward along with the dining room wait staff

Cons: There were lines for everything and there seemed to be a lot of people everywhere you went. The only exception were the entertainment lounges late at night.

Bridgetown, Barbados
Carlisle Bay beach and the flying fish
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Dominica
The rainforest was worth the trip

Nice beaches, lots of casinos - not much in the way of sightseeing for natural or historic items
