Review SummaryOverall we had a great experience. This was our first time cruising and did an 8 night cruise. We enjoyed both our days at sea and in port. The only issue I had was our port of call to Antigua. Our plan was to see the island on our own via cab. However\, upon arrival the port is dirty and run down. When getting off the cruise\, personnel were at the gang plank encouraging us not to leave the area that was run by the cruise lines on shore (we were told outside that area it is \"trashy\"). This gave us a little panic and ended up booking a rather expensive shore excursion at the last minute. Our excursion was wonderful and we went in a taxi that we would have rented on our own. After the excursion we had him drop us at an old church about 6 blocks from the docks. We then walked back. It was a little rundown\, but not unsafe and we enjoyed getting a real feel for the island.
