Ship Quality
Ship size was perfect.... The crew washed windows at our Verandah suite at least twice during our 11 day cruise.
Food and Dining
Food overall was excellent. It does seem that now that there is the option to pay for exceptional dining that the meals in the formal dining room were just a tad less special....especially the steaks.
Cabin / Stateroom
Bathroom in the Verandah suite was spacious. We loved having a tub as well as shower.
Service and Staff
By far, the friendliest, most helpful of any of the cruises we have taken.
Shows were great. Missed having ballroom dance classes, but there were many other things to do so it wasn"t a problem.
Roseau, Dominica
We just walked the town....sidewalks are narrow and uneven. Streets are narrow with a lot of traffic. This is definitely a place to take a tour.
Bridgetown, Barbados
We took the Barbados Coast to Coast tour and enjoyed it.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Again, we took a tour and visited the fort and the Capitol building. We only had a morning in Puerto Rico. Ship sailed at 1:00PM. Since it was a Sunday, the better stores only opened at 11:00.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Unfortunately, Nov 11th was a National Holiday so everything was closed down. The sightseeing tour did give us an overview and some scenic spots.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We did the tour to St. John's National Park which was great! We didn't really see any of St. Thomas.
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
