Review Summary

The ship was beautiful and spacious/clean. This ship was smaller than a previous ship I had been on (the Adventure). I was not overall impressed with the amount of shops on board, the Adventure was more my style with a promenade of shops and a large coffee shop as well.

Cabin / Stateroom

Room was oceanview and spacious. The only negative was that we did not receive the next day's information for the island/boat activities twice. Also we did not receive invites to the past cruiser parties.

Ports Of Call

Bridgetown, Barbados

The terminal at the port where the cruise ship dicks is the best shopping and prices for the island. Waste of time to pay taxi to take us to town to shop.
Don't Miss: None

Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.

Not much to do except shop. Even the shopping was minimal. Extensive police presence wherever you go made us feel jumpy. Hot as Hades the day we were there and most of the shops had no air conditioning.

Water is beautiful. Did a snorkeling excursion on Crusoe Island. Most fun I had on cruise. Had lunch, all we could drink and snorkeled for hours. Fun!
