Fabulous cruise.The staff was very attentive and the food was good. We really enjoyed the pub as an alternative to the buffet or dining.  It was a little busy doing four port days in a row, with the last being only a half day at port didn't leave much time to sight see.

Cabin / Stateroom
Happy with the size and layout of the cabin.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
On the whole destinations were fine but disappointed in the final stop being so short and rushed. Most Excursions seemed pricey.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Dining room food was very good, buffet was average for a cruise ship. Disappointed in the extra charges for specialty dining and also extra for specific meals on those menu's.
New York, New York
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Took the $10 bus trip tour of the city and was well worth the money.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Definitely would recommend the sky ride car.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Only shopping around the port. Would be a good idea to grab a taxi or bus and go to the beach or tour of the city.
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Port time was way too short from 7 am and leaving by 12:30 pm. The port was under construction so getting to everything was quite a walking distance.
