Ship expereince was good, excusions through were HORRIBLE!!!!!!!

Sail Date: June 19, 2016

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Ship and entertainment on the ship were great. Swimming with the turtles in St Thomas,  and the rum, reggae beach trip in St Marteen were the absolute worst. I have gone on 4 snorkeling trips over the years, and the boat (Fury) and the Captain made for a horrible trip. Rum Punch tasted like sea water, the capt made discolored and inappropriate comments about women " and his many ex wives" VERY offensive, he was rude, and the snacks provided were a bowl of pretzels and one type of granola bar. The Rum Beach bus ride in St Marteen was disorganized. 30 minutes late to the beach, and had to wait another 15 mintues to have someone come get us to take us to the beach. Waitress at the beach was rude. Both excursions were horrible.

Kept clean and was enough room for 4 of us to live comfortably.

Destinations and Excursions
Swimming with the turtles in St Thomas was horrible. The Capt of Fury (boat) was rude and snacks provided was a bowl of pretzels. Rum punch tasted like sea water. Beach, Rum Reggae bus in St Marteen was also horrible. 30 mins late, and no one to meet us at beach!
Onboard Activities
My 18-20 year old daughters loved the karaoke entertainment. The shows were also very good.

Shows were definitely worth going to.
