Ship Quality
Food and Dining
food was good, staff was attentive, was a struggle to get bar service in dining room, Maitre de never introduced himself once during 7 night cruise
Service and Staff
most times they looked tired , beaten down, worn out. Most were very helpful, some should've jumped ship at first port

Aviod the green monkeys....they bite!!!!!!!!!!
Don't Miss: 4x4 safari and Paradise beach
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
excursions were short, too much time travelling. Meagans bay beach was great!, Avoid Coral world...not that much to see. Found a nice cozy place for a cocktail downtown called Coconuts owned by former New Bedford Ma residents and being from that area had plenty to chat about....good food reasonable prices.....and if you're lucky they will photograph you and post your pictures to their website!
Don't Miss: Meagans Bay beach
Castries, St. Lucia

Don't Miss: river tubing
St. John's, Antigua
Beautiful island...beautiful beaches. Antiqua by the sea is the best! Get to see the whole island by power catamaran, snorkel, stop at two beaches, open bar, lunch, music, what's not to love about it!
Don't Miss: Antiqua by the sea
