Clean. Friendly staff. Great shows. Plenty of activities.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Great variety of foods in dining room. Impressed with number of selections and taste of sugar free and low fat foods. I was able to enjoy great foods and desserts without compromising on taste and gaining more than 3 pounds on a 9 day cruise. Happy to see Royal Carribean dining is for all....even the health conscience and diabetic travelers.

Had interior cabin. Plenty of space to put away our clothes for a 9 day cruise even though we packed too much.

Took guided jeep ride. Great fun driving on left side of road. Guide showed us great views of St. Thomas......able to swim paradise beach. Such a treat.

Just disappointed that we arrived at 4pm and were unable to take advantage of more excursions due to the time of day. Happy that shops were open late even though we arrived on a Sunday.
Don't Miss: old fort. It was a walk, but such history can't be missed.

Great improvements to this port since our visit in 2003. Now has a port, no tenders. Plan your excursions ahead of time.....much to do. Don't want to miss out on activites due to filled excursions
Don't Miss: Dragon Breath zip line and parasail

Not much at this port. Took ATV guided tour. Poor island. Guide spoke Spanish at times even though we were English speaking tourist. One stop showed their goods to sell. Lots of children here assisting us to the walk to the waterfall. Did not expect this, did give tip to the children, however, they were not happy what we gave. We did not know if we would encounter more children and begging at another stop, we did not want to run out of cash. We would avoid a cruise in the future with this port.
Don't Miss: Swimming at the waterfall

Pros: relaxing, at sea for 2 days at beginning and again at end of cruise.

Cons: 4 ports of call in 4 days

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!
