Wonderful Cruise

Sail Date: July 20, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

This was my family first cruise.  We had a suite and it was a wonderful experience.  Everything that our ticket agent promised was delivered.  Ship was clean  and staff was very helpful and generous with their time.  Both my 21 year old and 10 year had a blast. The activies was well co-ordinated and we were always welled informed of what was happening on the ship.  Getting on and off the ship at each Island was very easy.

Awesome Island. We did a tour with Cutburt. Nice guy, he took us around the island-breathtaking. Great craft market.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Follow the ship advise on this island. We did a tour with the local taxi company. Total rip off. Nice island, but felt scared at times. Nice town area where the ship is docked. Lots of local fruits to try
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Beautiful island. Loved the water taxi and all the shops. Beach was awesome, people wasa awesome. Be careful of buying from Diamond International here. My son brought a watch that was damaged, not the one we agreeed on and we did not know about it until we got back to the States and has since been getting the run around as they have a not return or exchange policy


If this is your first cruise, get a suite. It is spacious and very comfortable.
