Great cruise

Sail Date: March 11, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

I thought the ship was very nice. The tin looking walls around the ship were kinda of weird, but they did add character. I liked how there were two dinning rooms, the service and food in the dinning room was excellent! The Lido deck should have more vegetarian options with more diversity at breakfast (more english muffins/bagels/granola/yogart). But do not get me wrong the food was good. The gala buffet was very nice but set up weird. Usually it is done in the dinning room so it is easier to see and with more ice sculptures...? The room service was great-our room always clean and on time. The gym and spa were a little small. The shows were good, but I thought the dancers were a little "risk-a" at times (hense the thongs). The music by the pool side should have been more steel drums/caribbean instead of a folk singer. The captain's dinner was great, as well as the free cocktail hour! Overall, I enjoyed my cruise tremendously!

Pros: all the unique designs that each bar had

Cons: The lido deck food

Somewhat expensive compared to the other islands, but what a beautiful beach island!
Don't Miss: Lay on the beaches!! Dickens Bay
Castries, St. Lucia
My favorite island!!! So green, lush, tropical! So much to see on this island! Hire a driver (bargain) and have them take you to the drive through volcano, swim in the mineral/mud baths for $2, see the twin pitons, and all the beautiful villages and sites along the way.
Don't Miss: Twin pitons and drive through volcano- Must try local food right in the market place. $4 for a plate of all homemade local food-down a side street right near ship!

What a unique island! So tropical and lush! Visit the Emerald pool and the rainforest! Cheap and friendly island. Again, try the local beer and plantains.
