Sailed in Oct-06. Enjoyed the cruise and the way in which the staff made you feel welcomed. The outside stateroom was great and the size was just right for two. Although it was a relaxing atmosphere, there was not enough activities on the ship to keep one occupied unless you enjoyed gambling, sun bathing or bingo, but that didn't take anything away from having a great time. Grank Turk was not worth having as a port of call. There was not much time at the stops to really get a feel of what the islands had to offer, but if you plan your excursions well you get a taste of it. Extremely hot, so if you do book an excursion make sure it is an air-conditioned vehicle, unless you like the hot sun.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
It's a cruise! Food for everyone if you look for it. There could have been more choices available late at night for those depressed after losing in the casino, just kidding, but quality and quantity of food was not an issue.

The comedian was great, the magician, well it was a magician. Not much choice in this area.
