The ship of course is beautiful. The cruise director and staff are excellent. Most of the other staff were also nice not outstanding but nice.  Other cruise lines offer more in terms of dining.  There are too many nice restaurants on the ship you have to pay extra for.  The dining options included are just ok. No lobster tail or filet mignon.  The main two specialties were Prime Rib which was good but also Chicken and Waffles.  Chicken and Waffles on a cruise ship, really??????  No access to the sauna or steam room without buying an expensive membership, $ 45 per day or $ 200 for the week.   Bingo was a little pricey.  The Broadway show was excellent. No beverage or dining station at the front of the ship which was inconvenient.  This was a very expensive cruise and I expected a lot more from it.

St Maarten and the Bahamas are just ok. St Thomas is exquisite
Cabin / Stateroom
Lito was a great steward. Our room did need to be cleaned, the toilet was left dirty. We were told Immigration was in that morning so they had to clean quick. That was disturbing.
Miami, Florida
Go to Zoo Miami!!!!!
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
The whole french and dutch side was so confusing. Nothing great. Didnt have enough time at the beach. Just go to the beach yourself, forget the tours.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Gorgeous. Take the tour to Mountaintop. Breathtaking.
Nassau, Bahamas
Stay on the ship. Atlantis is too expensive. Straw Market is annoying with how they hassle you.


The Tropicana is the nicest of the main dining options but again nothing to rave about.
