Gorgeous and very comfortable! We happened to travel over the holidays. The holiday season, fact that it was longer than the usual 7 days made crew and "guests" particularly upbeat. Having a big number of multiple generational families and a cross section of international cultures also contributed to the memorable times on board. We especially enjoyed the art tour excursion in St. Maarten. The "art" was fun but what set it apart was going into small galleries, and artists' homes. We walked away with something closer to an insiders view that rarely happens on a trip such as this. Ssssh! don't tell too many people. Our guide "Sandra" was exceptional. Thank you for all.

Pros: The service staff every where was perfect plus: highly trained, energetic and personable

Cons: Problem with the walking tour in San JuaNice guide but his English fluency was limited. What was to be several hours, was cut in half. Weather was snotty but who cares. We paid $49 for about 1 1/2 hours a piece and it was dark, and dismal, and mediocre at best.
