Cabin / Stateroom

Very comfortable beds, although would have preferred if we could have pushed them together to make a double. Plenty of cupboard space and decent sized bathroom.

Ship tip

Make the most of the Lido, outside eating at its best.

25 minute walk from a really good beach where you can snorkell with turtles. Nice town too.

Castries, St. Lucia

Didn't enjoy the town of Castries but didn't do an excursion. Town was crowded and not good pavements to walk on.

St. John's, Antigua

The port was very quiet due to Boxing Day but had a great but scary trip to a beach which was lovely, great views.

Kingstown, St. Vincent

Schooner boat excursion was very good, would have liked longer to snorkell though.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
Beautiful town. Went to a beautiful beach but the taxi was very expensive.

Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda, B.V.I.

4 out of 5
The port had a lot of hurricane damage but the baths was well worth a trip and quite cheap at $4 each in an open sided bus.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Very beautiful place, went to the airport beach which was certainly an experience.

Pointe-A-Pitre, Guadeloupe

Did a waterfall excursion which was great except it was dark and raining so couldn't see much.
