Very good family vacation

Sail Date: November 06, 2016

Reviewed: 7 months ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Favorite part was the friendly staff that catered to all our needs and made it a pleasant holiday.  The ship though was too small and did not have a lot of activity for mid 30 to mid 40 aged people.  There is def potential to offer lot more things than what we had.  And the big ports like St.Maarten should have been a full day vs. 8am-2:30pm.   It's too short of a time to do anything on land.  Lastly the food quality was not that good compared to other cruises.

Was too windy so did not get to see it.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
It's a small island that does not need a full day.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
It should be more like 9-9pm or 9-5pm. The day was too short.
