I have been on many ships in the past and I found the layout of this one to be so streamlined and intuitive. This was an all around good trip. The food was good, the service was good, the ports were good. I would definitly go on this same ship again.

The layout was great, the ship was very clean, the decor was classic and not cheesy.

Cabin / Stateroom

The pullout bed was a bit hard and of course the bathroom was tiny. The sink could use some better drainage. The balcony was a nice size and comfortable to sit and read or watch as we pulled into port.

Beautiful natural lush wildlife. We went to the Twin Falls and swam in the waterfalls. As long as you don't mind cold water it's amazing. Mero beach is a black sand beach with crystal clear smooth water.

Great beaches are close to the port and lots of fun activities available right on the beach.

My friend visited the Baths and Virgin Gorda and she said they were amazing. We went to Brewers Bay and it was so nice and less crowded than Cane Garden bay. Keep an eye out for the passing cows and bulls on the roads!

The beaches here are not that great and the taxi guys at the port will try to convince you to go to one place over another to get kickbacks from the beach bars. Don't bother here.

Pros: The design of the ship was really nice and the service was great

Cons: Skip the desserts
