Review summary

I've been on 13 cruises and this one ranks in my top 3. The ship size is perfect, there are just enough activities to get you through the week and not make you feel overwhelmed, the ship's staff members were fantastic and friendly. I loved all the ports we visited and would gladly repeat this exact cruise itinerary and ship again.

Embarkation was fast and easy. We got there early and there was no line; walked right up to the counter.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
Always a great experience cruising out of Ft Lauderdale. The port is so close to the airport and embarkation/disembarkation is always easy.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

St Kitts is beautiful. As soon as you get off the ship, there are monkeys everywhere. They are so cute. We did an excursion with the St Kitts Scenic Railway. Got amazing views of the entire island. They handed out free drinks (the rum punch was the best), and had singers come to each section of the train to sing.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten
