Runny eggs and not like the post cards

Sail Date: August 30, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Room Type: Balcony

Due to the hurricane, we skipped one of our ports of call, but more time on the ship made the obvious problems come to light: the food was mostly average (with a few good ones in there), the activities when it was raining didn't include much more than opportunities to spend more money or play cards and finally, we just were stir crazy. The only shining light was the service on the cruise, it was excellent. The rooms were fantastically clean, the people we saw every day like the steward and the waiter were both friendly, efficient and surprisingly thorough and overall the ship itself was good for what it was (a floating hotel).

Pros: Stopping in St. Thomas was amazing!

Cons: Not enough stops, not enough to do on the ship, food was mediocure.

There were more activities for kids on the ship than adults. The video arcade, the separate areas for under 12 and over 12yr olds made them always occupied and everyone I saw that was under 18 was having a blast.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
The beach trip on the French side of the island was okay with a nice scenery but a horrible cafe at the beach with average food.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Maegans Beach, don't skip it and if you can, buy a house there. You also might want to look up the driver that we had at His name was Shane and he was friendly, helpful and willing to go on side trips to make the most of the time off the boat.
