Great ports, Average ship, Average food, Average Entertainment
My partner and I booked this cruise in the last 90 days and scored a 550 inside cabin for 12 days. We have no complaint about the price and def got more than we paid for.
With that said, as someone who is a frequent cruiser this ship / food / entertainment was pretty average. We are 36 and 27 years old and we were def in the 100 youngest people onboard of the over 2000, because of that we didn't feel the whole experiance wasn't really gear towards our demographic.
The ports of call were great, except St Thomas, I guess the port was over booked with cruise ships and we had to tender to shore, because of this we were unable to get off the boat till after noon even though we arrived at 8am! Had to be back on the ship by 4pm So we lost that day completely.
Dominica is a new port the ships are going to now, it ended up being our favorite port, from the champaign beach, to the waterfalls, to the boiling sulfur pits, it was a really cool experiance. It wasn't over touristy like St thomas and St Marteen have become.
The rest of the ports were cool, Barbados we swam with turtles over a ship wreck, st marteen and st Lucia were nice and touristy.
7 days at sea is a bit much for a smaller ship with limited activities, we spent many of those days chillin in our small inside cabin because there wasn't a ton of activities geared towards a younger/middle age crowd.
If youre a baby baby boomer or older this cruise will be great for you.
if your gen x/y ... You will be able to relax but won't be blown away
millennials will get board with the ship after a day or so.
The 12 day part of this is really the best thing, the 3/4 days to settle in and realize your on vacation was nice, then the 5 days at port felt like abtrue adventurous vacation, then the last 3 days to unwind and do nothing was great. Overall middle of the line cruise experiance, if you can snag this cruise for a good price (40-60$ a day) its worth your time.

For a 20 year old ship you will be really impressed with the upgrades and what it had to offer considering it's a smaller older vessel ... with that said, you can tell it was designed 20 years ago, and there isn't a ton to do if you're under 50 or over 15...
