Ship Quality
Beautifully decorated ship. Very dignified. We loved sitting by the pool and hot tub in the Solarium. Very nicely decorated and so comfortable!
Food and Dining
Good food, but we would have liked to have more choices of entrees.
Cabin / Stateroom
Larger than normal stateroom with a couch. Very nice for watching TV and roomy for two people. Larger than normal shower. Very nice!
Service and Staff
Very friendly and courteous staff at all times.
Very talented performers. Excellent dancing venues and wonderful ballroom dancing lessons. Many activities to choose from. Wonderful shows every night.
St. John's, Antigua
Very nice island. Take a tour by taxi and see it all. Nice beaches. Good buys on jewelry even on the pier here.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Very nice beach and good food at lunch. The zip line was too expensive at $85 per person, so my husband decided not to do it.
Samana, Dominican Republic
We went on a tour and to a beach by private taxi and received a wonderful massage for only $10 per person. There were a lot of vendors on the beach, however. We also hiked to a very pretty waterfall, and again, there were many vendors on the way up the mountain.
Don't Miss: Waterfall and beach
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Our favorite island in the Caribbean. A must see. Take a tour around the island and then you can snorkel on a jetty off the beach.
Don't Miss: View from the mountain that separates the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Excellent port and shopping. Lots to do. Beautiful. We went on a cruises.com New Horizons St. John's sailboat snorkeling full day excursion with Italian lunch cruise. Excellent excursion,food,drinks, and staff! Special kudos to Captain Marques and crewman, John! Very accommodating and helpful. They were wonderful hosts and highly adept sailors. Bravo!!
Don't Miss: New Horizons St. John's full day with Italian lunch sailboat snorkeling trip. Special kudos to Capt. Marquez and crewman, John.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Wonderful shopping. Very friendly people. Take a tour of the Dutch and French sections of the island.
