Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Specialty restaurants were fantastic. Although it was very hard to get reservations. Many specialty restaurants were completely booked the entire cruise week.

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Pool area was incredibly small. The staff did a poor job with keeping children out of the adults only pool. Also there was not enough lounge chairs for everyone. If you didn’t get to the pool area by 6:30am there wasn’t a place to sit. Very disappointed.


5 out of 5
Choir of Men was excellent! Probably one of the best shows we have seen.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
Service was good except in pool area. It seemed there wasn’t any ship personnel to manage the children.

Ship tip

Don’t expect to get a chair at the pool unless you get there early.

Beautiful! Only complaint was the time we were there - 5:00pm to 11:30pm. There were not any excursions available.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
