Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Many good things to be said about this cruise like the great staff, decent food and good shows.   Never felt crowded on the boat.   The only cons would be that the ship could use some updating which I believe is scheduled.   There can be a better method to prevent saving chairs around the pool also but these are minor complaints.  Overall, it was very relaxing and enjoyable.

Check in is much slower than other cruise lines.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Pretty but short. Took a $10 taxi ride right at the pier. Well worth it.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Excellent excursion to St John - Hike and Beach
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Always a fun port. Where else can you get two lounge chairs and 4 beers for $20?
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Took a ferry to Virgin Gorda. Very beautiful island.


The entertainment was surprisingly good - acrobats, comedian, etc.
