My wife and in-laws took the sep 24th cruise. It was my idea and i had been counting down the days since mid july. I read about every dream review until i started just reading the 4 and 5 stars because i got sick of hearing the whiners who nobody can please. Found lots of great tips and secrets. We enjoyed the motown show, the fun force dancers, the made to order omelets, the warm chocolate melting cake, the spacious cabins, the track in the aft that circled the putt putt golf course, the water slides were neat, our cabin steward camelo, waiter jose and ewon, our photographer jay, all the other photographers, the steaks, the casino, the photo gallery, and most of all the breathtaking atrium.
We had bad weather about half the time but who can help that? The nassau port stinks, in st thomas make time to skyride to paradise point and indulge in the bushwacker as you take pics of the gorgeous views of other islands and your ship below, and just find a beach in our favorite More island of st. Marteen. We chose the beach near the ships and Phillipsburg shops and loved it. Cheap beer and 30 minutes of jetski for only 55 for the 2 of us.
The ship is huge but easy to get around. The crew bust their tail to serve you.
We loved our cruise despite the weather and will cruise again before too long. Less

The water was amazing looking at the beach close to the ship in phillipsburg. We got a tour of the entire perimeter of the island when going to marigot and loved it. French side a little too laid back. Dutch side was vibrant.

Must see is paradise point. Amazing views from top. Megans bay was let down for me. It was cloudy and rainy when we went but i was dissapointed. If you like jewely go many stores.
