Our first cruise, and we had so much fun!  The staff was attentive, helpful and always upbeat.  The entertainment was fun, and there was always something to do.

Ship Quality
Very clean and maintained well.
Food and Dining
Would have liked to know in advance of the outdoor barbecues as we almost missed them. Would also like to see the evening's menu for each of the dining rooms on the TV in our room.
Service and Staff
Dan Dan, Luz, Petra, Jacky, Mandy, Ben
Kenosis was a great band. The piano player (Billy?) was very good.
Onboard Activities
Fun all the time!
Destinations and Excursions
Was sometimes a very long walk to the excursion buses
Cabin / Stateroom
Was always clean and taken care of. It was not well-lit (especially by the make-up/hair dryer area), and the bed is in the way of the full length mirror! It was tight, but sufficient for 2 people.
New York, New York
San Juan, Puerto Rico
The fort was interesting and the views were nice
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
A beautiful island with lots to see and do. Magens Bay Beach was amazing
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Half of the See and Sea excursion was cancelled, which was unfortunate. Our tour guides were nice, however.
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Stunning views, just not enough time there


It was hard to find a seat in the dining rooms sometimes, but the staff tried to help you find a place, even carrying your plate for you. It was also hard to find lounge chairs by the pool as people just put towels on it and you didn't know if it was saved or if towels were left there.
