Review SummaryWe liked the cruise very much, especially the South Caribbean itinerary and being able to visit a great new island for 6 continuous days. We debarked the ship everyday to see the islands, all of which are truly amazing. Hands down this is the best way to quickly see the region as getting to the individual islands, room and board on them individually is quite expensive - whereas here everything is taken care of ... you just visit the island and be back to unlimited dining options, entertainment options, and a fun evening awaits you. The entertainment options were good considering we are first time cruisers.
To summarize - we have about 1500 photographs from this trip.
The food was good too, especially the dinners - lunch was good too - didn't fancy breakfast much. All of the staff was super courteous and helpful. We are vegetarian in diet (no poultry, meat or seafood) and yet we found ample variety and options.
Also noteworthy is that since the cruise was from San Juan, Puerto Rico the cruise itinerary took us to the South Caribbean where the waters were so pure and the weather was amazing in the middle of Winter (December) ... whereas a cruise from any port of Florida during the peak holiday season does not go as far south.
So the verdict ... Bottomline - "no complaints, just accolades".
