Southern Caribbean Cruise

Sail Date: March 28, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The cruise was great, especially the shore excursions.   A big advantage of sailing on one of the smaller ships is that they can get into the tiny and interesting ports. One was Barbados where we visited the Harrison Caves and saw some glorious stalagmites and stalactites. Granada was also interesting. That little island was almost destroyed by Hurricane Ivan and is just starting to come back to life.  We toured a nutmeg factory and a dark chocolate factory and got free samples at each.  Yum.  The best excursion was on Aruba where we took a six hour Catamaran cruise which stopped at two beaches and then provided a lobster lunch onboard. Yes, I did get sunburned, but not super-bad.  Only had a 50 percent block with me.  But yes, it was worth it.

Ask questions of your cabin steward when you think things are not working the way they are supposed to. Sometimes things are a little different than you expect.
