Destination: Eastern Caribbean
SAMANA..do an excursion. you need some guidance there. check out toursbyterry on this website. we did an excellent beach excursion with him. ST.THOMAS...been there before so we felt comfortable doing are own thing. spent the day at meghan's bay and it was great. plan to get there first before shopping as they run out of beach chairs. downtown shopping was great if you want jewelry or watches. david yurman full store there. TORTOLLA..again, i'd recommend an excursion there. we did the virgin gourda highlights through ncl and it was quite nice. on the boat over there...SIT ON THE TOP. boat fumes were terrible. PRIVATE ISLAND... get there on an early tender. no need to do the advance reservation of seats, but grab them as soon as you see them. we walked to the end of the beach and it was less crowded. if you want a round float, get ASAP. they only have 20 and sold out right away.
ENTERTAINMENT was fine. comedian was great. was hoping to see sharkbait but he wasn't on our week. second city from chicago was just okay. the adult only shows at 10:30 were quite good.
GUEST SERVICES was a joke. we had many various questions throughout our trip and they NEVER knew the answer. ROOMS...nice size. bathrooms were the best i've seen yet on a cruise!! very spacious. the rooms were airtight for noise. you could barely hear who was knocking at your door. that was a plus.
we're doing Royal next winter break with 14 of us, all one big family. there are definitely things i like about ncl that royal doesn't have and vice versa. hope this review helps. i certainly got info from other cruise reviews so i thought i'd share my own experience. Less
Great Ship. Great Cruise. Grea...
Relaxing, seemed like a brand ...
Not the best cruise
