Beautiful islands!

Sail Date: March 18, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We just returned from our cruise and overall had a great time. This was our first balcony room and loved it-definitely a must on future cruises. The shows were great, the dining room staff were extremely accomodating as was our room steward. Loved all of the islands with the exception of Barbados-too commercial for our tastes. On the down side-we were hoping to do some scuba diving on our trip. The few diving trips offered had evidently been sold out prior to the cruise online. The staff member at the tour desk offered no help in suggesting possible ways to arrange dives-telling us we should have booked online (months in advance). He made it clear that unless we were buying a tour, he had no time for us. Also, had trouble with the people in the adjoining room-smoking marijuana constantly, yelling & screaming all night including threats from the man to through his wife overboard. Our room phone did not work when we tried to contact security. The noise could certainly be heard up and down the hallway. Perhaps the presence of a security guard patroling the halls at night would help settle this type of inconsiderate neighbor down. One other note: we, unfortunately, had the need to visit the infirmary on this trip-very efficient staff! All in all, a good vacation that we would consider repeating.

Pros: The choice of ports visited

Cons: High drink prices, Lack of help at the info/tour desk
