Review summary

Overall a very nice cruise. We enjoy the southern islands. The weather was somewhat uncooperative. We did similar trips in Nov and Dec with nicer weather.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Flawless walk on, with luggage: no waiting.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
4.5 stars: very good, some small details to be attended to, some things spectacular.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Lots of variety. Missing local lectures and demonstrations from local experts. There was a lecturer aboard: basically a lagoon looking for a free cruise.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Good entertainment. Adequate variety. We enjoyed the musical group "Prestige".

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Other staff Definately a 5, however for the first time our room steward was a 3 at best.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We sailed aboard about 10 years ago. We noticed positive changes in the recent retrofit. This is a classy gorgeous ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Absolutely what we expected. Minor things needed to be addressed, room steward should have addressed.

Ship tip

Go to International Cafe on deck 5 at the atrium and buy a coffee card, you won't regret that you did.

Fort-De-France, Martinique

3 out of 5
We walked to the fort in town. Nice. We were looking to snorkel but excursions were full. Perhaps next time.

St. George's, Grenada

2 out of 5
Did not leave the ship. No interest, we visited several times previously. Not one of our favorite islands.

Bonaire, Netherlands Special Municipality

5 out of 5
Spectacular. We went on the Sea Cow snorkel trip to Klein Bonaire. Absolutely the best snorkel trip we have ever taken hands down.

Willemstad, Curacao

5 out of 5
We took an excursion to Blue Bay: outstanding. Following that trip we walked about the town: very safe and interesting. Although we visited many times before, we continue to enjoy Curacao.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Flawless walk off with luggage.
