Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Buffet restaurant could be cleaner by using some anti bacterial spray to clean tables and counter tops.

Onboard Activities

Salt water swimming pools and jacuzzis lovely.

Shows were amateur, very bizarre content. Too many dancers and singers all battling for positions on the stage.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Excellent service in the restaurant from Harbin and Ali. Our steward was very friendly and kept the cabin clean with the limited time he had.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Buffet restaurant needs the tables cleaning properly with some anti bacterial spray. Our cabin needed dusting during the cruise but wasn’t done as the steward has very limited time.

Cabin / Stateroom

Nice spacious cabin, midship which made it quiet.

Not very nice port area but we’ve been to Tenerife a few times so didn’t need to venture further.

Lovely place. We took a local taxi with a driver who was happy to show us his island.

St. John's, Antigua

We walked around the port. We went in the church and the museum which was very interesting.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

The friendly island and it certainly is. We stayed in the port area, lovely shops and beach. You can walk to the beach.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Went on Up 2D Time tour bus. It was a fun island tour with a good informative driver.

Fort-De-France, Martinique

2 out of 5
French governed island, did island tour which was poor. Taken to a church where a funeral was taking place. A waterfall that isn’t worth looking at and a river? Had time at a volcanic beach which was horrible. Glad to get back to the ship.

No issues but we got off after the masses.
