Great, but be cautious of the age group.

activities for the age group of 45's lacked. No caribbean music by the pools. Aft pool had a loud speaker that you could hardly hear, but it was regular music you hear at home anyway.

Service and Staff

Very friendly and respectful.

Ship Quality

Too much room spent as a library. Too many bar areas that no one sits in. Wasted space.

Cabin / Stateroom

Smaller staterooms, but clean and had many drawers and closets.

I found the water to be the most beautiful here. If just going to the beach, you don't have to pay as much money to go to the Boatyard, there is a section of beach next to it that doesn't have as much charges. The chairs and umbrellas are for rent for $5.00 each, but you get a drink coupon for each item.
Don't Miss: beach

Arrived 7am and left at 1pm. No shops open until 10 or 11. Nothing really to do. Especially if you have been here before.

Don't Miss: Megans bay

Pros: The ship is beautiful. The teak deck chairs are wonderful for wathching the sunset. The crew was friendly and called you by your name within the first few days.

Cons: My husband and I are 45 & 47. The average age on board was 60. Not much in the line of exciting activities. A lot of time was spent on crafts, art auction, internet instruction, reading and suduko/crossword puzzles.

Recommends Noordam? No.
