Review Summary

Ship is worn, but clean and comfortable

Ports Of Call

La Romana, Dominican Republic

3 out of 5
Nothing at port. La Romana is a bustling city and overwhelming to tourists. Very agressive pan-handling. Escorted Tour to Santo Domingo was very informative and educational- we were just seeking a self guided walking trip, we were very disappointed.
Don't Miss: Altos de Chavon and Kandela Show

Roseau, Dominica

1 out of 5
Beutiful landscape and foliage. Trafalgar Falls and Emerald Pool are most popular attractions. Roads are mostly one lane and steep hills. Driving is a challenge. Glad to have seen it, will never return or will spend day on ship.
Don't Miss: Bruce Morne Overlook

Bridgetown, Barbados

Beaches are beutiful; taxi drivers are rude. Recommend going to Boatyard. For $15 get chair and umbrella, return shuttle to pier, and drink. I went to free beach next door but paid $10 for 2 chairs and umbrella, $10 for taxi back to port; and $5 for 2 water bottles.
Don't Miss: Malibu Beach and Distillery

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Shopping mecca of caribbean. Prices were not as competitive as in past years. I wanted to buy a digital camera and had better price offers through Costco. Cuzzins is a very popular restaurant, recommend the Conch Fritters.
Don't Miss: Shopping

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Very clean island, friendly people, nice port. Took a private excursion that was excellent.
Don't Miss: Romney Manor and Caribelle Batik
