An amazing ship! It was our first cruise and we were just overjoyed by the overall experience. Kept up with a lot of forums to find out what to pack and how to prepare, they all were very helpful. The food was delicious and the parties amazing. The only downside was our room steward. We often felt he was not helpful or considerate towards us, however we had an balcony room, great drinks, and a blast so we did not let him spoil the trip at all!

Too commercialized, Americanized. Not at all what we were expecting. We were lucky to find a cab driver who was local and gave us our own personal tour of the island way off the beaten path. We loved that!
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
The BEST destination and most incredible beach!!!
Nassau, Bahamas
Over crowded, pushy vendors, and locals seem more interested in selling tourists their wares than sharing about local culture. When asked about historical places that we researched before arrival, the locals were clueless of those places of where museums were...just overall disappointing. If you're looking for souvenirs though, this is the place.


We did not realize this until the third day, but Taste and Savor serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. To avoid the crowd and receive table service, we opted to eat at either for most meals.
