Review summary

What a great itinerary. Two of my favorites. Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay, the private island. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful destination. I just wish they stayed here over night. My sister is the group leader so she rented a villa on HMC for all of us to enjoy. If you have the money, I would do it. You get fruit, snacks and drinks. It is 2 levels with a hot tub and private bathroom, AC, ceiling fan, kitchen, scuba gear, beach chairs, etc. 

Our villa.

Service and Staff

Always so attentive. I try to make them work as little as possible. They have such a heavy work load.

Ship Quality

Always clean. Friendly crew also.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a premium balcony which is a balcony that is oddly shaped in order to fill an odd space. It was a little bigger than a regular balcony room and had a balcony that was 1 1/2 times bigger than usual. We knew our neighbors so we opened the divider and had a huge balcony. We LOVED this room.

Ship tip

Deck 6 forward, as far front as you could possibly get is a hidden secret. We were the only 2 there. We saw a lot of flying fish. It was so neat. Take pair of binoculars to use while out on deck or on your balcony. I plan on buying a pair.

Our usual port of departure.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Skip Margaritaville. way over priced. Lunch for 2 of us was $96.00. All we got was appetizers and a drink. Instead go down the beach 500 yards to the left to Jack's Shack. Great food and great owners. The collect license plates.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
if you have the extra money, rent a villa. You get fruit, snacks and drinks. It is 2 levels with a hot tub and private bathroom, AC, ceiling fan, kitchen, scuba gear, beach chairs, etc. Well worth the money.

Nassau, Bahamas

It was nice to walk around town. We wanted some local money so we asked at the one shop. None of the locals had any so the directed us to the bank. LOL
