We had a ball on the excursions and came back each night to sit on the balcony to relax away from the crowds. Saw so many lovely things and had a wonderful trip!

Service and Staff

Great people who are available for whatever you need, wherever! And they do it with a smile.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Older ship, but still clean and well kept. Like the newer larger ships better though where the shops are all more centrally located.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our in room speaker didn't work so we could never hear the captains or cruise directors comments unless we opened the stateroom door.

Took a boat that turned out to be somewhat of a let down after a great catamaran ride the other day. The beach was rocky until you got into the luscious white sand, then the waters were wonderful.
Don't Miss: Swim with the sea turtles! What beautiful creatures!

Loved the open markets in Marigot. Make sure you ask where to go to the restroom because if can cost you over a dollar if you use the one at the mall.
Don't Miss: Orient Beach has the most beautiful colored water. We went to the clothed portion and swam in the rolling waves. Was great!

Magen's Bay is beautiful and like swimming in a dream. Best bahama mama drink I ever had was made in the little bar/restaurant there.
Don't Miss: Don't Miss Magens Bay

Make sure you take a catamaran ride to see the many beaches. We went on the Mystic and had the best time ever. A1 boat, A1 staff and A1 lunch aboard.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling on the reef!

Took a bus tour and saw the lush lands which included banana plantations, rain forests, botanical gardens, the sulfery volcano. Then boarded a boat for the remainder of the tour. Nice day.
Don't Miss: The Pitons

Pros: It was great to sit back and enjoy the cruise and hand responsibilities over to staff.

Cons: Towels left on lounge chairs and not knowing if they were truly available or not.

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!
