Having spent over 200 nights on Royal Caribbean cruises I have watched a once fun and exciting vacation turn into a ho-hum vacation. You just spent $2300 to go on a 7-night Caribbean vacation. First stop: Cocoa Cay, their private island. $20.00 for a beach umbrella. Next stop, St.Thomas. They stop at a port away from the large downtown shopping area. $18.00 cab fare if you want to go downtown. St. Marteen, decent beach,worth the $7.00 ferry ride. Windjammer, loud hip-hop music at breakfast. Food selection and quality, average. Dinner: mediocre selections, smaller proportions. Solarium: if you don't reserve a seat by 7:30 you're not going to get one. Evening entertainment: good if you're between 20-35. Personally considering another cruise line.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Downtown shopping s where the great deals are.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Good beach, convenient to ship and local shopping. Better prices than St. Thomas.
