All cruise lines are cutting back on some of the niceties, but the food was good and the staff friendly and helpful. We chose this sail just for the itinerary, and the islands en route did not disappoint. What a delightful change after the cold, miserable winter in the Northeast. Aruba was fun, but Bonaire (especially the glass bottom boat tour) was excellent, and Grand Turk had phenomenal beaches. Having a few days sail before Aruba and a one day sail before leaving the ship is very relaxing as well. Our only suggestions is not to over air condition the public spaces and reduce the volume on all the shows and presentations. We know you have a great audio system, but turn down the amp. Leaving an event with ears ringing detracts from the fantastic shows you present.

Ship Tip

Many ships have a shaded promenade deck that goes from bow to stern. This was one of the few that did not. Always enjoy a walk around such a deck after breakfast.

Appreciated the adult only section.
