Lots of food. Wish there were more gluten free breakfast items, but certainly didn't starve!

Platinum Restaurant

Martin, Irfan and Momerto were amazing. All the staff worked hard, but took time to have some fun too!

Had a gluten free option and it was delicious. Always a line...

Guy's Burger Joint

Hubs loved this place. The line was ALWAYS ridiculous. Would be nice if there was a way to decrease wait time.

Creams Cafe

5 out of 5

Very nice and efficient waitstaff. Would like to see one or two gluten free options in the sweet case. Coffee drinks were great!

Alchemy Bar

Internet Cafe

Only an internet cafe if you purchase an internet plan, and then it may or may not work. Best to get an international plan with your wireless carrier before the trip. Tried to print airline boarding passes the night before debarking and couldn't get on the internet. I paid $25. for the better plan.... wasted :/

Serenity

Nice and quiet place to go if you're done with a lot of noise and small children. Nothing against small children, had two young ones once. Now they're grown and it's nice to have quiet time with them.

Ship tip

We purchased 3 cases of bottled water for our staterooms ahead of time. Best idea yet! Prepare to wait for ground transportation. They wait until the bus is full rather than run at specific time intervals. Doesn't pay to get to the bus early. You'll wait. Minor inconvenience, tho...

We did the Underwater Power Scooter. So much fun! Well organized, lunch a bit weak, but it was food. The guys at the rental facility were great!

San Juan, Puerto Rico

We did 'Learn to Surf'. Oh my goodness. So much fun and laughs! WELL worth it. The instructors were awesome and so patient! Gabriele, Ian, Jonathan and Roly were wonderful. The hotel and food/drinks or beach afterwards were great too!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

We did the 65' Catamaran Snorkel and open bar. The crew on the Castaway Girl 1 were wonderful, knowledgeable and fun! Rum punch wasn't bad too. Such a beautiful place to snorkel in Turtle Cove.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
We did the Terre Cross. Wow, fun, but dirty and dusty! Pedro and Juan Carlo(s)? were great! Tasted fresh coconut water and meat and Juan Carlo climbed a tree to get us fresh mangos. OMG! So good. Took a dip in a local watering hole, tasted pineapple wine and some other treats too. Well worth it! Was nice to see the countryside and some of the local culture.
