Fantastic Voyage!

Sail Date: January 26, 2008

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was quite nice but with one shortcoming: lack of space around the outdoor pool for tables. Everything else was more than adequite. We prefer this size of ship vs the larger 3,000+ passenger ships. The decor was excellant as was the accomadations. The Buffet lines were good but they used more servers than self serve which slowed the process down. The ship was probab ly the cleanest and spotless of all our previous sailings.

Pros: Service by the Staff Members.

Cons: Buffet Line: not enough self serve which slowed things down.

St. George's, Grenada
Ahh, the island of spices. We took a tour of the nutmeg factory (primative and hand labor) where sorting and quality are prime objectives. Grinding is done in othere locations. They export the nutmeg nuts in burlap sacks. Very interesting. The waterfalls trip was enjoyable but the falls itself disappointing. The locals at the few shops were very friendly and conversational. We did not ice a few snake skins (non poisonious) hanging from the rafters in the area by the refreshments. At a cost of $42/ person this trip was OK at best. NOTE: The tourguide was excellant and certainly knew his data.
Kralendijk, Bonaire
Beautiful place with great beaches. However the one we were on was shallow for hundreds of yards, The water was crystal clear but you needed to get out closer to the reefs to really enjoy. We're not snorklers or divers. This is an up and coming island that will soon rival Aruba. We took a cab to a beach and set a time with the driver to return. He did! Cost was $5/person.
Don't Miss: THe beaches and water.
Roseau, Dominica
This was a little rustic island with little that interested us. We spent most of our time on the ship.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten
My wife thought this port had great shopping, luckily we weren't in port any longer. Access to and from the shopping areas was excellant and convenient. Didn't have enough time to sight see or eat.

Oranjestad, Aruba
Oh yea, they've been at it for some time. This is a very developed and commercial island. It is rather pricey. Both Bonaire and Aruba residents hope that the US Dollar will become/remain their monetary medium. They are fearful that the Dutch will select the Euro making everything to expensive. The Kokoo Kunuku open air bus ride was the highlight of the trip, The Tourmaster played great sing along music, provided castinets to shake and said to let evryone know we were coming. The Light house was interesting great view from the area (no access to the lighthouse). THe Windmill was somewhat disappointing. The beach we went to was affected by "boiling" the night before causing the water to be unclear and seaweed to be washed ashore. This was disappointing but the busride saved the day. We didn't find any evidence of a body but did hear that the major suspect made incriminating statements to a supposed "friend". The town looks like a great place to "PARTY'. We'll see.
