Review summary

Nice trip with the grandchildren. Islands didn't offer too much for us but grandchildren did their own thing such as scuba, snorkeling and beach work. We had some good tours. The sub to the ocean floor was great. We also did sightseeing trips giving us an overview. Excursions were expensive. I wouldn't recommend this trip to anyone. One section especially the last portion was enough. Virgin Island was the best island. After awhile the islands all look the same with the vendors selling the same things. Too much advertising for jewelry. Internet was expensive on the ship. Bed was terrible. Room as good. Food was OK.
