Review summary

I would definitely do this cruise again. So much value for your money. Very relaxing. The strange thing that we found was that the buffet food was better than the dinning room! However, we ate dinner in the dinning room every night hoping for the best. It is fun to be served and we always dress for dinner, pictures and the show.

Some of the shows were a let down. We always look forward to going to the show after dinner and about half of the shows were not up to par.

Super clean. Cute little port hole which I really enjoyed as I could see the water from a sitting position. The room was small but effecient. Very clean and tidy. Small little tv that sometimes didn't have signal. Great shower heads with lots of pressure and super hot. Small though, but to be expected. The closet was just right for our 7 day trip as we each brought many clothes. I was concerned that there may be some noise from being under one of the main restaurants but we never heard a sound. Very quite room and never felt any wave action down there either. Extremely happy with the room especially since we picked the cheapest ocean view room where they pick your room for you.

Ship tip

Do not expect this to be a large brand new ship with all of the bells and whistles. It is a 1992 ship that is small but friendly. It was a little boring for us but that was exactly what I was looking for,. the price was excellent and there were no lines and no drunks or screaming kids. The pizza was great and never lines. They serve your ice cream to you and had chocolate, vanilla and strawberry., I liked this because it kept it clean and sanitary. The ship was constantly reminding you to wash your hands and they disinfected you wherever you went. No sickness! Yay

We just got off of the ship and rode a little wagon type rig the 2 miles into town and walked along the strip by the ocean. Ridiculous amount of people trying to give you a massage on the beach. I didn't do any but they were as cheap as 15 bucks an hour. Had lunch on the beach. So much fun.

We tried to book a zoo and city tour on through the ship prior to sailing but they were sold out. When we arrived at the port we signed up for a tour through a local place that looked reputable. Turns out we were duped, wasted our day and didn't get to see anything. They promised me a city tour where they would stop and let us get out and take pictures etc with a stop by a beach and a rum factory. They said we would leave in 10 -15 minutes, so we paid 27 bucks each and waited,.... for an hour! They said we would be in an air conditioned van. What we got was an old tour bus that took us out to a boat dock where they let 10 people off to go to some beach, then we went to a rum factory and then headed back to the port! I asked about the city and they said we aren't going there!!! One of the reasons I booked the cruise was because I wanted to see the old city, but didn't get to. We really wanted to try some local food so we hurried out to find a local restaurant. Of course we had someone insist on having us follow them just down the street., The food was good but from a shack and we were approached by all kinds of people trying to extract money from us for all sorts of reasons. We walked back the short distance to the port by ourselves and it was like walking a scary gauntlet. When you didn't give money, you were called horrible names and we felt the need to walk fast!

Rented a car for 60 bucks right outside the port and drove around the island stopping at various beaches and such. Had a marvelous time. Loved that day!

Disembarkation

The ship was a little late in getting into the port and people were packed into the staircases and the area in front of the elevators. We went to our designated wait area as were others in there too. No one talked to us or told us what was happening etc as we watched our time go past. We decided that we would just get in the line and leave like many others. The line went fast and our luggage was there waiting for us. My complaint is that the ship should have gotten on the loud speaker and told people what was going on. Communication can be quite helpful when people are getting angry and restless.
