Review summary

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.

My 18-20 year old daughters loved the karaoke entertainment. The shows were also very good.
