Getaway...eastern Caribbean

Sail Date: March 22, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship itself was clean and well maintained.  Crew was amazing.  Port stops were short.  Compared to other cruise ships we were the last in and first to leave.  Hardly time to explore.Many hidden fees with the cruise.  Specialty restaurants were hard to book and cost extra.  Auto gratuities were a surprise and very costly, don't expect to pay one price and enjoy the cruise; you keep paying premiums fares.  The excursions are worth some study time.  We felt ripped with ours.  Also the advertised spa treatment was very expensive with auto gratuity at 18% and poor massage that was painful and rushed.  Overall the experience was alittle expensive.  Would maybe cruise again but try another cruise line.

Avoid the st john beach/snorkel break. You spend lots of time on lines and on the boat waiting for other cruisers from other boats. The time on the actual beach itself is amazing but way too short 60 mins. for a whole day event. Book your trips early as well as reservations at specialty restauran
