Carribean cruise to San Juan, St. Thomas and Grand Turks Island

Sail Date: May 09, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Overall the cruise was good. The service in all areas was excellent, the food was good especially in the dining room. The musical shows in the theater were very professional and well done. We were disappointed in the comedians they were not funny. There was one incident at the aft pool on the Sunday before we reached San Juan when a group of 20/30 somethings were diving into the pool and creating a very dangerous situation to people in the pool and to themselves. One girl slipped on the bench around the pool and if she had fallen she would have cracked her head open and it would have been very nasty. A waiter told them to stop but they didn't listen to him. Security came later but did nothing. There were people who wanted to go into the pool but couldn't because of the dangerous behavior of the young people. The weather was great all week and the excursions at each location were very well done and enjoyable.

Must be on deck when the ship goes under the Verrazano Bridge.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
The walking tour of the Old city is great and should be done by everyone who is a first time visitor to San Juan. It takes two hours and gives you a lot of history and sight seeing at the street level.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
St. Thomas is very mountainous but the views are great
Grand Turk Island
Island is flat but has a great beach right near the dock and you can take a towel and sit on the beach and go into the water.


Get a cabin on the lido deck because that is where most of the action is and the food and pools.
