An excellent trip

Sail Date: November 29, 2014

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Can't fault the cruise line at all.  Had one small, bad experience with one member of staff, but nothing major.  The rest of the staff were amazing, the room was large, clean and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Ship Quality
It was refurbished recently, so in great shape.
Food and Dining
Loved the "Didja ever" option on the menu. I tried alligator and frogs legs for the first time ever!
Cabin / Stateroom
Plenty of room even with the couch being made up as our daughters bed.
Service and Staff
Sudi, short for Sudiatra I think, was excellent looking after us and keeping our room perfectly clean and tidy.
It was really good but smaller and shorter than other cruise lines.
Children's Programs
Probably good for the older kids as they looked to be enjoying themselves, but the 3-5 year olds was a room with 80% of the kids crying and not a good atmosphere to drop your kid off at.
Onboard Activities
My daughter loved the splash park and I loved the huge waterslides.
Destinations and Excursions
Unfortunately we had super high winds in Nassau but no fault of the ships. Would definitely go back to St. Thomas and Grand Turk.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas We went to Maagens Bay and it was beautiful.
Grand Turk Island We stayed at the beach in the port which was a bit crowded, but you can take a taxi to quieter beaches.
