We had a really good time on this cruise. The cabin exceeded our expectations, and, the service was excellent, esp. the room stewards. Our dining experience was also excellent...The Scarlett Room provided us w/excellent dining experiences, except for the last 3-4 days of the cruise, when we had to wait over an hr. to get our main course. The shore excursions, all in all, were "ok". One of them, which was purchased on-line pre-sailing, turned out to be a big disappointment. it was described as lasting 4 hrs; w/1.75 hrs. beachtime at 2 beaches. However, the driver would only allow us 10-15 mins. at each beach, and, by the time we reached the last beach, he told us he had to be back in town before 12, which meant our 4 hr. tour was cut by 2+hrs! We were not pleased!!! However, the 4 of us(1 other couple on the bus)"pressured" the driver to allow us at least 45 mins. at this his credit, he did. I have filed a complaint w/the tour operator owner, and, he has promised me "a refund"...wouldn't say how much, though...oh and he did promise this: "if you come back to St. Maarten, I will give you this tour free!"....) :
