Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first cruise and I could not have imagined how great it would be. We loved the service and were so surprised to find that every single crew member was friendly and happy to serve. The overall staff attitude was refreshing. Our stateroom was cleaned twice a day and exceptionally clean. Each day we received a menu of the next days activities and other information. Our bed was turned down each evening and a towel friend was left of the bed each night. It was exciting to see what the new friend would be each day. The creatures, including a monkey, panda, seal, anteater, rabbit and puppy, were created by twisting and folding towels. The stateroom was roomy and comfortable. We had three closets, large king bed, sofa table and chairs. The room also had a window veiw which we. enjoyed very much. There were many activities to participate in day and night. We especially enjoyed the night life. We liked the casino, the Blue Bar with a great live band, the shows in the Amber Palace and the Kaliedascope Bar. We enjoyed the artwork that was to be auctioned and the ship stores. Every night the photo shots took place and it was fun to look for photos the next day. We purchased many. The food was also great. We enjoyed the dining experience each night in the Golden Resturant. We also enjoyed the buffet in the Red Sail Restaurant. We ate pizza 24 hrs. a day and hamburgers and french fries from the grill until late each night. Coffee was always available and delicious ice cream. There were always sun lounges available on the decks and never once did we have to wait in line for anything! Every single aspect of the cruise was mastered down to a science on this ship! We will never forget this experience and have already recommended a cruise to everyone we know!

Pros: Friendly staff and great service.

Cons: No pools without kids.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Wonderful shopping. Thsi port was clean and more sophisticated than St. Thomas. We enjoyed the view and the shopping. Next time we will visit the beaches.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We went downtown to shop at St. Thomas. Too crowded and busy. Taxi ride was expensive and scary. Next time we would go to the beach. Everything seemed slumy and too touristy.
