The staff was excellent throughout the cruise. They were always helpful and friendly. The food was the best that we have had on any cruise. It was uniformly excellent. The wine list is good and the bar brands included in the price are very good. The cabin was well appointed with a walk in closet and granite counters in the bath. Bath amenities were very good. We did notice the vibration in the aft part of the ship that has been mentioned in other reviews. I would be hesitant to book a cabin in that part of the ship. Our hotel in Ft. Lauderdale was an Embassy Suite. It was obvious that it got a lot of heavy use and did not meet our expectation of a luxury hotel stay. The transfer from the airport to the hotel went well but the other transfers were late and very poorly organized. We were told where to wait for the bus to the ship from the hotel and that an announcement would be made when it was ready to leave. The bus was an hour late an no announcement was made when it started boarding. Neither the hotel or transfers met our expectation of luxury. The shore excursions were very spotty. Only one met our expectations and one was so overcrowded that we cancelled a similar excursion later in the trip. Check with the activities desk on-board to get details about shore excursions. They are very helpful and knowledgeable. We did not see many of the entertainers but enjoyed the couple of shows that we attended. We enjoyed most of the ports and itinerary, especially St. Barths.

Cabin review: Deluxe Suite

Nice walk in closet, well appointed bath, good bed, plenty of storage, average balcony

Port and Shore Excursions

We took a bus to El Yunque and spent a little time in the park. I would liked to have more time in the park and a guide with more naturalist knowledge. The bus ride is long so time in the park is limited.

The catamaran tour here was excellent. We had about a dozen on the boat and it was not crowded at all. The beach and swimming were very nice.
Walked into town. Did not do any excursions here. The waterfront in town is interesting. There were 5 other ships in port so it was a very crowded area.

We took an excursion to the Baths on Virgin Gorda. It is a 350 yard walk down a rough path to the Baths. They are very beautiful but they were also very crowded when we were there.
