Nice and relaxing

Sail Date: December 2009
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan

7 Night Caribbean Crusies stopping in St. Thomas, Tortola, Antigua, St Lucia and Barbados. Great cruise to see many ports of call. Ship is nice clean and well laid out but some areas like the piano lounge (which has one of the best entertainers on the ship) gets very crowded. Ship leaves out of San Juan Puerto Rico and I can honestly say if you take an early morning flight transfers and embarkation are a snap. We where on the ship in less than an hour from the time we picked up our bags at the airport. One of the nicest feature of this class of ship is the Movies under the stars. They showed some fairly current movies and even had some of the weekly football games on the big screen.

Plenty to do at each port as well as daily activities on board. Food selection at the buffets , Pizza and burger spots was good and the quality of food was very enjoyable. We had second seating dinning for dinner and it never interfered with any activities. Sabatini's is a great choice if you don't More mind spending the up charge for a great dinning experience. Nightly entertainment was a bit of a let down and was fair at best. Only other mild complaint was the whirlpools on deck which did not operate with much force.

On a scale of 1 -10 I would rate the experience an 8. Less

Cabin review:

OVerall Clean and Comfortable. Large closet with plenty of hangers which is unusual but nice to have. Balcony was one of the largest we have seen we had 4 chirs and a table with plenty of room to walk around. Fridge in room to keep drinks cold.

Best of the Stops


Great shopping but know what your looking for and what you want to spend. Watches and jewelery you can save a lot. electronics such as cameras there is not as much to save and may be able to get better deals in the states when sales are run.
