Seas were very rough most of the trip which made the cruise uncomfortable (but not Holland America's fault obviously).

Grand Turk Island was beautiful, clean, and no hassle shopping.

San Juan is more commercial like the US but served our purpose.  Lots of restaurants.

St. Thomas is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean.

Half Moon Cay was a real surprise.  Clean, neat, and best of all a great noon barbeque.

Our cabin was on 8th deck below the Lido restaurant and was noisey from the restaurant above. Suggest being on 7 or 6th deck to eliminate the noise.
