Review summary

This was a great cruise, probably one of the best I've been on in awhile. Ship is pretty updated with nice looking amenities. The service is absolutely wonderful. I liked all the destinations except st. Maarten it didnt really thrill me but you can relax. All the beaches are amazing on these islands with Antigua and Barbados being the best in my opinion because the water is the clearest. In st. Lucia I had hands down the best tour from a tour guide named arthur. If you're looking to purchase liquor in duty free st kitts is by far the cheapest. It gets way more expensive once you leave st kitts. You'll save more money per person planning your excursions at the ports as opposed to doing them on the cruise. Also, a bartender in the bull and bear pub named Arthur is by far the best bartender ever!!!!! I highly recommend this cruise for couples, groups of friends or families.
