Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was very clean and comfy. It could have been a little larger as we have had a balcony cabin in the past but choose inside room this time due to price.

Grand Turk Island

We have been to Grand Turk in the past but this time it was a little beat up I think due to the hurricanes last year.

La Romana, Dominican Republic

I wish there was a way to avoid this port but it seems to come up on every Western or Southern Caribbean cruise. We did a tour on the Chu Chu Train and it was very unnerving because of the armed guard. I know it was for our own safety but I don't believe the ships should be stopping in places like that with family's.

Willemstad, Curacao

4 out of 5
Did an excursion here with a little hiccup. We did the Curacao Beach Escape. It was supposed to be on an open air bus with narration about Curacao and a place to stop for pictures and end at the beach. We loaded on a old closed bus with no air, it was about 120 degrees in this bus! About 3/4 of the cruisers got off an went back to the ship. We chose to stay on and brave it out. The bus took us straight to the beach. No nothing in between! A different bus came back in 2 hours and took us back to the ship. I would not recommend this excursion to anyone!

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
Aruba was beautiful. After the excursion experience in Curacao we chose to walk around on our own. It was a good experience. Next time hope there is more options for adventure on this island.
