This was my first cruise and I was very nervous because I typically have a very weak stomach\, but everything was fine. I used Seabands and did not have any major problems. From the time we stepped on the ship\, we were welcomed by a photographer\, and that was typical throughout the entire experience. They do not bother you if you don't buy the pictures; however. Our steward was fabulous\, and seemed to slip in and out of the room like a Ninja\, while anticipating our needs (like ice\, or extra towels) ahead of time. After the first excursion to the private island to the Bahamas\, I drank a drink called a Miami Vice and developed a little bit of a tummy ache\, so I sent my husband to get some Pepto Bismol at the gift shop. Well\, I did not know that it is a \"no-no\" and I was summoned to the ship's doctor and although I had no symptoms other than mild stomach discomfort\, I was promptly placed on quarantine for 24 hours and was not allowed to leave my room or get anything other than clear broth from room service. Thankfully the next day was a sea day\, but consider this as fair warning\, if you're truly ill go to the ship's doctor\, but otherwise\, bring some meds with you and keep it moving. The next excursion was St Thomas\, which had absolutely stunning views\, but we were disappointed with Cuzzins Restaurant\, which was recommended by the tour guides and cab driver...very little authenticity and very commercial. San Juan was also somewhat disappointing with an entire downtown filled with graffiti and public housing mixed amongst gorgeous historical buildings. Turks and Caicos has a private resort\, Bohio Dive Resort\, and we spent the day on their area of the beach which was less populated and the food was awesome. The shuttle driver also took us to a nice little store that had the best rum cake ever! Back to the ship...most of the staff was super personable and made us feel like royalty\, especially our steward\, Kono from Indonesia. He always greeted us with
