The best food I've ever had on a cruise. I've cruised over 20 times - and this cruise had the most wonderful selections and a diversified menu. I enjoyed the best prime rib of my life.

Willemstad, Curacao

We booked the Santa Barbara Resort through Resorts for a Day. This was a wonderful excursion. Air condoned bus picked us up at port and drove us back. The resort is breathtaking. Beautifully designed - pools and beaches were great. Jaymee was our waiter on the beach - food was delicious and we felt very well taken care of. I highly recommend this to all.

Oranjestad, Aruba

5 out of 5
Again booked excursion through Resort for a day. Went to the Riu. A beautiful resort. Food and drinks were included - everyone was very nice.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Booked an excursion through Cruises Only. Amber Cove port is owned by Holland America, if your excursion is not through the ship you have to walk outside of the port facility - be aware this is a long walk. But once on the air conditioned bus we had 3 tour guides, Umberto, Carlos and Nelson was our driver. After seeing some historical sites, we went to the Jack Tar resort where we had the most wonderful beach beds with pillows! Again beautiful venue and beach was great.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
Booked excursion through ship. Although we had heard of the devastation of this island, they have been working very hard to repair the damage. The Bahara Beach excursion was wonderful, beach was clean and water crystal clear. We were served a great lunch.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island) Did not visit port

Winds made tenders dangerous.


5 out of 5
Quick and hassle free.
