Smooth & delicious

Sail Date: March 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

CABIN: Almost 600 sq. ft., at bow, just below bridge. Spaciousness, view, beds, bathroom, dining area great. Furniture in living area disgraceful, like from a $40/night motel. Steward excellent.

FOOD: Excellent in main dining room; good to very good in buffet restaurant; outstanding at Murano; good at Q-sine, where the presentation was excellent.

STAFF: Uniformly excellent. Only problem at Guest Relations, where they twice failed to arrange for transportation from ship to airport. Inexcusable. Also, the ship personnel at the pier after going through customs HAD NO WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE SHIP! Hard to believe.

FACILITIES: Very good. Real grass area for bocce, croquet, sunbathing, etc., a delight.

SHIP DECOR: Blah, except for 2 water fountains, one of which was a amazing work of art; & the live tree sculpture suspended over the Atrium.

ENTERTAINMENT: The Cruise Director (like most in my limited experience) annoyingly More over-the-top with volume & enthusiasm. Cirque de Soleil type show very good. Other show I attended so-so. Live music excellent. Canned music at Martini Bar & pool often so loud you couldn't carry on a conversation or even hear yourself think. My companions & I complained with no results. Less

Cabin review: FV8107 Family Ocean View

As said above, 8107 is wonderful except for the lousy furniture in the living area. Master bedroom is enormous; but the large bed, with no other furniture, doesn't begin to fill the room. A couple of comfortable chairs & a table would be nice. We moved in a couple of dining table chairs. Lighting leaves something to be desired.

Port and Shore Excursions

Walked off ship. Hired Trevor & his van. For $20/person, he took us around the island for about 5 hours to various interesting sites; & to a local restaurant on a beach. Highly recommended. Lovely island.

Didn't get off in San Juan. Walked off ship at St. Maarten; hired a driver who took us to the French side of island; nice town; walked around; shopped & ate. Pleasant.
