Review summary

The cruise itself was great and worth it. promised a few things that didn't happen.


1 out of 5
Easy and fast embarkation. Not much guidance on Crown&Anchor benefit inquiries. Missed a free breakfast due to lack of guidance. Otherwise, all went smoothly. Highly recommend arriving by 10am and avoiding long lines.

My niece could not get enough of the kids club! She wanted to be there all the time and begged to go back all the time. Highly recommended.

Service and Staff

Dining room and housekeeping staff are awesome! Friendly and attentive.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Clean. At every port you'll see workers taking care of the ship, painting, cleaning, or keeping the ship in good conditions.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Housekeeping would always tend to your cabin and keep it clean. They don't mess with your stuff. 3 adults can stay in this cabin with enough room. Don't recommend more than 3 persons.

Ship tip

Have an idea of what you want to see before setting sail. Have a general plan. Enjoy and go to at least the last show!

Variety of beaches. Awesome flavored rum.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

4 out of 5
Liked the 2 seas view. Careful with monkey handlers; they may ask for too much $ for a picture. Know which beaches to visit; not all are good. Highly recommend catamaran tour. Inexpensive compared to other islands. Friendly staff on catamaran.

St. John's, Antigua

Friendly people! Ask for Capt. Teddy for tours! Ate the yummiest black pineapple and sweet mango. Mmmm

Castries, St. Lucia

Volcano visit is good and banana ketchup was very interesting. Many people do mud baths.

Bridgetown, Barbados Did not visit port

Ship nurse isolated me for food poisoning, preventing me from leaving cabin for 24 hours.
