This is a friendly ship despite its size. We enjoyed everything especially the willingness of the staff to help out whenever we needed it. The ease of getting on and this year we tried the Express Departure which was great and got us on our way in no time at all. The entertainment was superior and the Ice Show was spectacular. As for the food and service in the dining room it was appreciated and we were treated like royalty. We also enjoyed the Windjammer and C P . This was the first cruise for a family member and even though the first day was little rough...she soon became a real cruiser. Our excursions especially the trip to Saphire Beach were enjoyed by all and the snorkeling was the best.

Food and Dining

Lots of food, excellent service and of course the variety of food. We also enjoyed the Galley Tour this year.

The entertainment was top notch, but I also attended some of the lectures such as the History of the V.I., the Music Series, and the scrap book sessions. We enjoyed the activities on deck also, such as the Belly Flop, etc.

Service and Staff

Our food staff at dinner was always making suggestions and served us well. They remembered our special needs and took care of them nightly without having to remind them.

Ship Quality

We did a snorkeling trip and it was fine, not as good as Sapphire Beach, but the weather had something to with it.
