Overall Member Rating
A very nice cruise to the Caribbean
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarcation starts at 2pm, we got there at 2.30pm and apparently everyone was aboard already.
The cabin (called suite) is very comfortable, with plenty of space, walk-in wardrobe with adequate space for two and bathroom with both shower and bath. The refrigerator was refilled every day, the cabin attendant did a fine job in keeping all very clean morning and evening.
The restaurants are very good, Prime 7 is excellent. We came back twice without reservations, and they had no problem accommodating us and a couple of friends.The wines and liquor included are good choices, and you can always upgrade to better. Surprisingly, the lunch at the grill by the pool served chewy ribs that needed another hour in the oven and burgers that were often raw or overcooked.
We perceived the staff as being generally kind and attentive.
During the day and for the More tours, people would mostly dress in swimwear and a polo shirt. For the evenings, men would wear a shirt, many a jacket and some a tie, The average age of the passengers is high.
The laundry service is very good.
We enjoyed the shows and the dancing to live music.
The Internet service is very expensive. They charge 99 cents per minute plus a connection fee, and whatever you do will take very long because of the speed being so slow.
The gym is small but adequate, there is a small sauna and a steam bath. We walked the deck every morning. The spa service is fine and expensive.
The tours are well organized, disembarking is fairly quick, but you need to book early, many tours were sold out months in advance.
The Blue lagoon in Nassau, Bahamas is a boat trip to a nice beach with music, bar and the lunch is included. They even offer free internet. We enjoyed that.
The art museum in San Juan is not worth a visit, we heard the other tours were better. Starbucks near the port, in the old town, offer high speed internet.
In St. Barts we did the island overview and then walked the streets of this charming town.
St. Johns, Antigua offers the Swim with the Stingrays, and that was great!
In Castries, St. Lucia we did the Land and Sea to Souffrier and that was too long with many hours on a little bus. Should have done the Scuba or Snorkel.
In St. Maarten we went on a Golden Eagle Sailaway, snorkeling in a place where nobody saw a fish, but the tour and the catamaran were nice.
This ship has a problem with strong vibrations, and anything loose will keep you awake.
We had two incidents with plumbing in our bathroom, once we heard strange sounds at 2 am and the bathroom and hallway were covered with water. The repair was done immediately, but we had to live with a big noisy fan in our suite the last day of sailing. Less
