Our 7 night Eastern Caribbean Cruise was wonderful. It was everything and more than we had expected.  Jim, our agent,was wonderful in helping us to get everything ready.  He is a ten plus in our book.  Book with Jim and you will not be sorry.


The only complaint we have:  our dinner was ruined every evening except one with an unruly, undisciplined child.    In our opinion, families with small children should be seated in a section separate from seniors and those traveling without small children.  This child was a horrible brat. Otherwise, our cruise could not have been better.


The casino had a horrible odor.  Walking through it caused one's clothes to smell,  There should be a separate casino for smokers and nonsmokers. 


Smoking by the pool was a problem.  For nonsmoking cruisers the smell of smoke was nauseating.  The top floor would be a good location for smokers.

Cabin / Stateroom
Very good. Only complaint the air conditioner was unusually cold. However, we did not report it. The sliding glass door to the balcony was extremely hard to open and close and made an awful noise. Did not report it.

Otherwise, we had no complaints with the cabin.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Disembarkation could have been better for wheel chair cruisers. There were 3 people standing around for 7:00 -7:30 am. I think there time could have been utilized better by taking care of the wheel chair cruisers rather than standing around.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Our room steward, Solomon, and our waiters, Peter and Victor could not have done better. All three were excellent and should be "keepers".
Food and Dining
Great except for comment above
