Relaxing and Exciting- all in one vacation

Sail Date: February 14, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The allowed us to relax during the several days at sea.  Though the pool area was somewhat crowded, there was no problem is locating lounge chairs in both the sun and shade on the pool and walking decks.  The ports of St Kitts and St. Martin provided a sufficient amount of shore experience.  The excursion desk is helpful but tends to overbook snorkeling tours and then cancels guest's reservations.  This is problematic because, at that point, most of the better excursions are no longer available.  The food is good, the specialty restaurants (Quisine, Tuscan, Mirano) are excellent.  The food at Blu (for Aqua Spa guests) is far better than the main dining room and there are mostly tables for 2 or 4 rather than the usual noisy dining room and "gang" size tables of 8 or 10.  If you want a romantic dinner, stay out of the main dining room.  The rooms are sufficiently spacious with enough room to store everything.  The rooms are kept extremely clean and the service is excellent.  Plenty to do and places to "hang out" on this spacious ship.  The shows are fine, the comics were very funny, the staff is helpful and friendly.  We have been on this ship three times and have rebooked for next winter.  Aqua Class provides you with many upgraded amenities- well worth the price difference.  ALso, lots less children running around than on other lines.

Cabin / Stateroom
Sufficient room, enough storage, very clean and well cared for throughout the day and evening. Our room had a great location and a good size deck where we were able to read, enjoy the view or just stretch out and unwind.

A waste of time, nothing to do or see. US goods at higher prices or junk stores. Eat, drink and shop on the ship.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Don't shop, buy it back home. Better stores have price fixed merchandise- same from island to island- shop back in the US. No bargains.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Don't shop, buy it back home. Better stores have price fixed merchandise- same from island to island- shop back in the US. No bargains.


Definitely upgrade to the Premium beverage package for the small extra "upcharge" per day; upgraded liquor and wines are well worth the difference. Avoid most ship tours, cabs do the same trip for less, you see more & avoid tourist "shopping" stops. Cabs are easily obtained and return for you.
