It was a breeze getting from the airport to the cruise terminal. It took no time at all to check in and go to our room.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our week in the main dining room. The food was delicious, and I like that we could try more than one thing at dinner. Our waiter (Kevin) was very attentive and polite. Windjammer was also a great option, with so many different foods to sample.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We really loved the shows we attended - two Broadway style shows and one ice show. My husband also loved the Star Wars trivia night. We attended an art auction, which was pretty interesting as well. There were many other activities available, but we didn't do most of them.

Ship Quality

You can tell the ship is older, but it still looked very nice. We were aboard before its amping, but still recommend it.

Bridgetown, Barbados

I was not a fan of this port. Not much within walking distance from the port was open and taxi drivers were very pushy. We took the Atlantis mini sub excursion which was pretty cool.

Castries, St. Lucia

BEST island on our trip. I loved the trip up into the Pitons. Beautiful!

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
We took the railway tour. It allowed to see the island and learn the history of the island. Plus, they served delicious (FREE) cocktails.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten
