We were both really looking forward to this holiday and the chance to relax and escape to some winter sun. I am pleased to say that both the ship and the destinations did not disappoint and this was a fantastic holiday.
I have provided some detail of what we did on each of the ports and would urge anyone to get off an explore on every island - do your own thing.
The highlights for us were the picturesque Wilemstad, the spice market and Grand Anse beach on Grenada, the local bar and resturant converted from a shipping container in the middle of nowwhere in Barbados where we entertained the locals when trying the hot sauce (yes, it is !. We loved the atmosphere in Marigot and the people and beauty of Dominica.
The service and food on the ship was top notch - we had chosen the 8.30 sitting and ate in the Oriental restaurant most nights. Our waiters Sri and Juan were excellent and the food choice and quality terrific. We ate at the 3 select venues during the cruise and really enjoyed the change in style and pace. Sindhu was our favourite for food - Sean loved the Rabbit tikka but we also enjoyed the experience of the tasting evening at The Glasshouse and would recommend this to anyone and understand it gets booked up very quickly. We ate in Seventeen the night of my birthday and it was a lovely meal although we were puzzled why the wine menu was smaller thatn in the main restuarant? My only comment about dining in the select restaurants is that although the food and service is top notch I felt they lacked the atmosphere of the main restaurant.
The entertainment was varied and very professional - we had no trouble getting a seat at any of the later shows in either the Playhouse or Manhatten. The Reel to Reel show put on by the Headliners was as good as many West end shows we have seen.
I woudld not hesitate to recommend this ship or this intinerary to anyone and felt you could find your own perfect holiday so easily with all the choice on offer.
