7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 25, 2015
Ship: Emerald Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: R605
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The cruise was very good.  The staff was personable and made every effort to make the cruise a memorable experience.  The food, particularly at dinner was always good and at times exceptional.  Enjoyed the ports and activities.  Would recommend this cruise.  I will say that, possibly due to the time of year, it was a "mature" passenger group.  My companion and I may have been the only persons on the ship that were not retired.  At least I didn't meet anyone who wasn't retired.

Catch the shows. I suggest the dining rooms for lunch rather than the buffet.

Beautiful Island. Went to Iguana Farm. Interesting, but not exciting. Take the tram by the pier to the beach.

Ziplining and cavetubing are the thing to do. Book on-line, Half the price of the ship's excursion.
