We loved the itinerary on this cruise, and that at each island we had from 8 am to 6 pm to explore. The food at the restaurant was delicious and the staff were wonderful and friendly.  We especially liked their dancing routine in the evenings.

Our cabin was a good size w/balcony, which we loved to sit out there and read, and our cabin was kept immaculate.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was just big enough and kept immaculate, and we loved the balcony and used it every day. I would not cruise again without a balcony cabin.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very easy once we found the way to floor 0. Again needed more signs.
Ship Quality
We wish that the paperwork explained and easier way to get to the Golden Restaurant. We didn't figure it out until almost the end of the cruise. You could use more signs when exiting the elevators.
Children's Programs N/a
We enjoyed the entertainment in the lobby, but did not participate in anything else. Our choice.
Service and Staff
They were all very helpful and accommodating.
Food and Dining
Disappointed in the fish & chips restaurant. They didn't have any baked seafood and we cannot eat fried foods.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
We went to Rainbow beach, which had snack bar on the beach and chairs for rent. The only problem is there are rocks along the whole shore of the beach that makes it difficult for people with walking difficulties to enter the water.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
we took the Catamaran, snorkel cruise in the am, which we loved. Then did some shopping in the afternoon.
We stayed on the ship and relaxed by the pool.
St. George's, Grenada
We took a cab to a spice shop, which I loved since I do a lot of cooking. The woman was very knowledgeable about all the spices and I bought a small basket of spices. Then we went to see the falls.
Bonaire, Netherlands Special Municipality
Very dry island with not much scenary. Again we took a cab tour and the girl was very nice, we went to Goto lake to see the Flamingos, but there are no beaches on the island as it is surrounded by coral. Would not go back there.
Oranjestad, Aruba
We went to Eagle beach which was absolutely beautiful with long sandy beach and we rented chairs. The only thing missing was a place to get a drink or a snack. If we had known, we would have brought something with us. We were told that their was a place across the street to eat, but preferred not to pack up all our stuff. I love Aruba. Very friendly people and safe to walk around.
Willemstad, Curacao
We took a taxi to a beautiful resort, Blue Bay, where they had a restaurant and bar right on the beach with bathroom facilities. Great day. We highly recommend this beach.
Miami, Florida
Not enough time to see anything before our fight home.


Few people know about the fish & chips because the signs are few and very small.
We did enjoy sitting by the small pool in aft section, but could be difficult to find a shady spot at times.
