Review summary

If this is your first time to these ports, please remember these islands are all under the strain of covid. They are normally much more lively. I have great empathy for SXM that they were just beginning to recover from hurricane Irma only to be hit with Covid. Enjoy the sun, the beaches and help support the people of the islands that have been so effected.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Tuscan Grille and Sushi on five always exceptional. Main dining also wonderful. Room service breakfast while timely was not hot (cold scrambled eggs) But that was so very minor in comparison to overall experience.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Pools and solarium both wonderful.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Stage show was maybe the weakest link. The acoustical groups and the steel drums poolside were terrific

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Alexandria and Eugene in Cellar Masters were terrific. Rattakan in Tuscan Grille was wonderful. Dannel formally in Cellar Masters, this cruise in the Retreat lounge is exceptional. All staffing was great. As was our room steward Aneiu (SP?)

Ship Quality

All areas very clean and well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We have never done a family veranda before and we loved it. The storage is very good. Towels and bedding were very comfortable. The temperature of the room could have been cooler, we did not ever ask for maintenance so that I am sure could have been adjusted.

Ship tip

Appreciate every staff member you engage with. The each are very grateful to be back sailing.

Ports of call

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

We came into SXM two days in advance so to relax before getting on board.

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
We did a beach excursion. It was considered a "bubble" excursion so it was a very controlled environment. Beach was nice, and local lunch was tasty.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands Did not visit port

We were rerouted due to covid

Basseterre, St. Kitts Did not visit port

Same as above
