Very nice ship and itinerary. But these ships are much too large and crowded and overwhelm some of the ports.

This cabin was wonderful. It was very comfortable and large enough for us to enjoy. The balcony was truly appreciated.

Ship tip

Definitely get a balcony. Make reservations for My Time Dining. Reserve tours ahead of time. Beverage package is not a necessity.

We rented a car and drove around the island ourselves. Highly recommend getting out and seeing St. Thomas.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

We used this day as pretty much an "off" day and just just walked around the city.

St. John's, Antigua

The island of 365 beaches. Find a beach and enjoy! Wonderful people.

Castries, St. Lucia

Take a tour here. Everything is very far from the port and tours are over crowded but they will get you the highlights.

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
Barbados is wonderful. It's not the prettiest island but the people here are probably the nicest in the Caribbean. We rented a car for the day. Get away from the port and see the island. Talk to the vendors and buy the trinkets from them, not the same shops you see in every port. We've spent a week here and would go back in a heartbeat!

It was a little disorganized and Customs was a very long wait. (Very nice agents, though.) I wasn't feeling well and the disembarkation and Customs and the agricultural inspection and TSA at the airport were very difficult.
