Food and Dining

Dining room was excellent, except for the first night. The food in the Tiffany (buffet) dining room was marginal.

The dancers were excellent (and I hate dancing!)

We never saw our teenage boys during the day....they always were at some activity.

Other than the stateroom, the ship was well maintained and clean.

The reefs off of Grand Turk were absolutely outstanding for snorkeling.

We went over on our own to St. Johns...taxis are expensive at $10 per person per leg...and snorkeled at Trunk Bay.

Great first port of call. Basically just a beach, but great swimming.

We took the free trolley up to one fort, walked over to the other fort, and then made our way down the hill, through the shopping of old San Juan and back to the ship.
Don't Miss: Kite flying at the fort....I have never seen kites so high!!

Pros: Wonderful ports for snorkeling and family beach activities.
