Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We didn't use the dining rooms other than once. We preferred the more casual seating at the Specialty Restaurants and the ease of the Horizon Court Buffet.

Crown Grill

5 out of 5

Melt in your mouth Filet and Sweet Buttery Lobster

Ship tip

Take about 1/2 of what you plan to pack. You don't need as many shoes and clothing as you think you might need.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

No excursion, but the view leaving the pier as you leave is just absolutely beautiful.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Love it, Love it, Love it. Don't be afraid to walk down the beach, it's beautiful (wear beach shoes as it is rocky as you walk down the beach further.)

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Nice Beach excursion. Small outdoor restaurants and vendors at the beach that were pleasant, helpful, yet not harassing.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

St Kitts is a low-key island, we enjoyed our tour and some local eateries.
