Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food quality was good with the breakfast and lunch buffets having enough variety and quality to saisfy over the entire 8 day trip--Dinners were OK with a number of selections each evening which provided a nice variety--some entrees were significantly better than others but overall the food quality at dinner was good, not excellent

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The big shows and lounge enetrtainment was easily the best of the cruises I have been on in the past few years--We liked everything about the entertainment

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The crew was friendly and helpful at all times

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was not too large or too small and very easy to navigate--we found all the public areas clean and thought the Metropolis lounge in particular to be especially pleasant

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I found the balcony stateroom that we had excellent and every bit as good as Holland America and better than the Princess cruise we were on a few years ago--the cabin attendant was excellent and the room was always made up promptly and very clean

Ports Of Call

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

3 out of 5
Took a bus tour of St Maartan but have been there several times in the past--I think hiring a private cab with a few others would provide more flexibility and enable you to bypass the inevitable refreshment (say souvenir shops) stops
Don't Miss: Duty free shopping in general

Castries, St. Lucia

3 out of 5
First time we visited the island and took the "Best Views of St Lucia" tour--worthwhile for the first visit--the tour people were friendly and helpful

Basseterre, St. Kitts

3 out of 5
Took the railroad tour around the island's perimeter and found it to be be interesting for a first time visitor--next visit we will go the private cab route

Pros: balcony stateroom---entertainment quality

Cons: evening meals in dining room
