Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was A1 and the service was excellent. After the first day the waiter knew that I like cappuchino after dinner and I never had to order it. He brought it himself.

This was the second time I was there. The first time I swam with the dolphins, which was a once in a lifetime experience and this time I took a tour up to the mountains which is also not to be missed
Don't Miss: The dolphins

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
Bridgetown is beautiful but the highlight was the beach where we spent about 1 hour.The water is warm and great to swim in.
Don't Miss: The beach

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

We did not have much time for sightseeing, as we bought lots of jewelry, which I alway buy there. The prices are unbelievable.

Roseau, Dominica

I also took the tour there. Roseau id beautiful but there is too much poverty
