A Great Vacation

Sail Date: November 01, 2007

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was my second and my husband's first cruise. Overall we were both very impressed by the service onboard and the ship's itinerary. The food was excellent every night and our waitstaff was attentive and sometimes even intuitive - making good recommendations based on their observations of us and our tablemates. The only downside to the ship was its size and passenger capacity. Though a large ship, there were several times it felt like you were on vacation with 3000 people in close quarters. Embarkation and debarkation was slow and there were usually lines every where and at all times. Although it was obvious that the crew was doing its best to deal with 3000 passengers, it would be nice to be on a more intimate cruise.

Pros: The Wonderful Service and Beautiful Ports of Call

Cons: Trying to get through the photo shop on deck 4 with 3000 other people!

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
By far the most beautiful beach we had ever seen. Clear blue water and fine, silky white sands. The perfect place to just sit and relax with a nice cold drink!
San Juan, Puerto Rico
We loved the old town for shopping and sightseeing. The buildings are beautiful and the history of the place just exudes from it.
Don't Miss: Take the walk down the seaward side of El Morro out to the point. Beautiful scenery and history blended together. And don't miss the local cats on the walk.
Grand Turk Island
Another very pretty beach (but still not as good as Half Moon Cay). We hung out at Margaritaville most of the afternoon after a snorkeling excursion. Snorkeling here was okay, but if you've ever snorkeled in Hawaii, you may be disappointed by the basically colorless coral.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Beautiful and charismatic, St. Thomas is the best place to shop for jewelry and liquor. Gladys Cafe is a great quaint little restaurant just off the beaten path down a cobblestone alleyway. A perfect place to eat while waiting out a tropical rain shower.
