Loved the Ship
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We also chose this ship because if the itinerary. We wanted to go specifically to St. Thomas, the reason was that we love going to Imperial Jewelers. Plus we all love the other shopping on St. Thomas. On St. Maarten we shopped and then went to the beach which was withing walking distance of the ship. On Nassau we just walked around the town, had lunch and drinks, and then heading back to the ship. The one place I would recommend to AVOID on Nassau is the Straw Market. It is soooo hot and it's row after row of the same stuff. Plus the merchants all sit in the isles and are eating, and whatever they were eating just made you nauseous.
The weather was great for our week but apparently the seas were a little rough because we could definitely feel the ship rocking. There was one person in our group that had to get a seasick patch put on, and after a couple of hours she felt fine. We also heard from people that were on other ships, when we docked in Nassau, that they didn't get to go to other ports because the particular ship they were on couldn't dock their ship. So they missed several of their ports. So I'm glad our ship was able to make all our ports.
I would highly recommend this ship. We had a wonderful time, and a great cruise! Less
Cabin review: BB10245 Mid-Ship Balcony
Plenty of storage space. Put our suitcases under the bed, so they were out of the way. People talked about the inconvenience of having the sink out in the rest of the cabin, but we didn't have a problem with it. I thought the cabins were nice and pretty typical of a cruise ship cabin, except maybe a little more storage space. The beds were very comfortable and my husband loved the pillows!Read All Mid-Ship Balcony (BB) Reviews >>
