Loved the visits to St Thomas and St Maarten, Ship was VERY clean and food was very good. Disappointed in scheduling, as we were unable to attend many of the shows due to late dinner time AND dining room in stern and theater in bow!

Also, I'm not happy about being "chiseled" for 18% added to EVERY ship board purchase, as well as the exorbinant  charge per day for soft drinks and water, plus you have to carry around their cup everywhere to participate!

Ship was clean, but venue's too far apart.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very comfortable for the two of us. Bed was great! Plenty of closet/drawer space and shower water pressure would peel the hide off you!! Balcony spacious enough for two chairs and little table w/o being crowded. A/C was excellent.

Ship Tip

Get "Early" dinner seating if you want to make any of the shows. DO use the "Windjammer" for breakfast! Huge selection (all buffet style) and better seating! Plenty of "window" table/seats for enjoying sea view.
The lunch on Coco Cay was also outstanding! Best hot dogs I've had in a long time.

Best part was the lunch... Beach we went to was "rocky" and w/no water shoes, tough on the feet getting in and out of the water.

Visit Kay's Jewelers, two doors down from Diamonds International. Less pressure, better deals. Ask for "Anar"
