Overall Member Rating
Hurrcaine Irena joined part of our 1st ever cruise
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Breakfast: We decided to use the coffee area for breakfast, coffee, rolls, raisin bread & danish pastries were lovely, if going late after 11.30 fresh cookies amazing and choice of filled rolls & slices of pizza.
Entertainment in the bars: Musicians were very talented but singers they were not,could bring tears to your eyes, the guitarist was amazing and anyone could listen to him all night long. The bar staff were professional & the cocktails amazing. Shows: the ice show was fantastic and well worth watching. other shows good & entainers very professional.
Shopping on board:Sales on handbags & shawls good value for money, everything else out of our price range.
Booking excursions: Easy to book & staff very helpful with choices.
Stateroom cleaning: Rooms were cleaned & beds made up as soon as you went for breakfast, beds turned down each eve & towels made up to look like animals very cute.
Pool areas: Stayed by the over 18 pool area, nice & quite, plenty of loungers available & staff to bring you drinks.
Gym: I only used once,liked been lazy, but did enjoy Hubby used most days & also the running track on 12th deck.
Would have liked to have massage/beauty treatment but felt was much too expensive.
People on the cruise were very friendly and the atmosphere relaxing, would definitely go on a cruise again.
On return back to New Jersey were following Hurricane Irene (Bad News) New york was been closed down & we would not be flying home that eve. Not all cab drivers were nice, check prices etc before you get in.Not able to get hold of Virgin to find out what to do, so booked into local hotel, Courtyard Marriott to sit Irene out.Had an extra couple of days in NY before we flu home.
