Best cruise out of 16.

Room Type: Balcony

This was my 16th cruise and the best ever. The ship was beautiful, clean and the staff was the friendliest that I have experienced. Maybe this was due to the female captain- only female captain of a major cruise ship in the world. When you go to St. Thomas be sure to take the excursion to St. John's and in Dominica take the whale and dolphin safari. We were a group of 6 and only had 2 additional people on our tour while the tour from the cruise line had about 50 on another boat. Unfortunately no dolphins were spotted but we saw 3 whales. What an awsome experience! The food in the dining room was excellent and the service superb! We had anytime dining but liked the waiter, Joseph, and assistant waiter, Muhammed, so much that we scheduled a set time and table for each evening. The staff had a very professional but happy attitude and appeared to enjoy their jobs. Would recommend this ship to anyone.

Pros: Friendliness and efficacy of staff

Cons: wine tasting

Loved the size. Easy to get around and with 2,100 people was not crowded at all.

Excellent. See notes in review.

This was the 1st time I had booked a balcony room and it was great to sit outside and watch the ocean.
