Food and Dining
3 out of 5
There was definately and abundance of food at all times to be eaten. Late dining worked out for us so we could have time to freshen up after returning to the boat.
We did not have a very friendly waiter for evening dining. He seemed annoyed when we ordered more than one entree.

Comedy shows were good. I also like the movie and popcorn nights.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Staff was always willing to help with anything that we needed.

The layout was okay. It was a little difficult to get to one of the dining rooms. You had to go 1-2 floors down and then up the stairs. Decor was a bit outdated.
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
Stateroom was appropriate size for the 2 of us. There was plenty of storage for luggage and toiletries in the bathroom.
We did the nature kayaking. This was a nice excursion with a beautiful view. It ended close to a bar restaurant called Shipwreck. This was a nice local beach to hangout at. They feed the monkeys so you can watch them during lunch time.
Don't Miss: make sure to look for monkeys. There is a spot on the island were you can see the Atlantic and pacific side split between the island.
Magen's Bay was the most beautiful beach I have seen. We definately want to go back again. Mountain Top was great as well. You got to see a great view of the island and islands close by.
Don't Miss: Magen's Bay
We did not get to see a whole lot here but the beach closest to the port was nice with plenty of restaurants beachside. You could take the water taxi across from the port and you were there. We rented a waverunner right there and there were also plenty nice shops.
We went on the land and sea tour. We got a very informative, thorough tour of the island on land. Our guide gave us a lot of history of the land. We saw the oil rigs, banana plantations, botanical gardens, a fresh water stream, schools, houses, everything.
Don't Miss: Make sure you see the Pitons
Pros: I like that there were so many things to do on the ship. I most liked the adults only area located right by the spa.
Cons: I thought it was ridiculous that you had to pay for soda.
