Everything was OK.....the three electric violinists on board were truly excellent. However, when teamed with the cast for Celestial Strings there talent was overshadowed by the lack of talent in the rest of the cast. Thus, Celestial Strings was a big disappointment.

Horizon Casino

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Nice Island! Pretty scenery...nice people.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Sadly, St. Maarten is still struggling with hurricane impacts......lots of destroyed buildings, terrible traffic. We did the Rhino Riders shore excursion which was fine.

Carnival needs to get their act together as we decided to "walk off" early but the lines were long and the management of the elevators was poor.
