This was our first cruise.  We loved everything about the trip!  The shows were entertaining,  the excursions on the islands were everything we expected. The seating for dinner was quick. All staff were courteous. We saw several comedians and enjoyed all shows.  You will have to stand in line to get into the comedy show. 

Only complaint would be to have them lock the exit doors before next show for comedian.  People leave then sneak back in the exit.  It is awful when you waited 20-30 minutes and then see someone come in the exit.  There were shows we could not get into because it was so full.  We watched 15 people walk back in the exit one night.  The show was not even that crowded at that time.

snuba was great! Not a lot of fish to see, but learning to snuba was a good excursion. We should have done the dune buggy tour too!

4 wheeler trip not really worth the money. we saw and stopped for one view, rode into rain forest and then turned around and rode back down. Great for finding seashells, but you have to take a cab or taxi to a beach. None in walking distance of port .

Philipsburg, St. Maarten Did not visit port

Loved the party bus. They do a tour of the whole island and you get drinks on the bus. 3 with ticket and then reasonably priced . Stopped at 2 beaches, airport to hold onto the fence, market to shop and "sea urchin island' a gentleman educated us on sea urchins.(we donated) he was very knowledgeable. Best tour we had!!!!
