Unfortunately we had a lot of cloudy, rainy weather. Food was good though I think the Specialty restaurants serve portions that are just too big, and such a waste of food,but atmosphere and service are excellent. Almost no waiting time ... Read more

This was my first cruise. I had a great time. Nothing like waking up and looking at the ocean out your balcony. Food was awesome and plentiful. Perfect portions I would say and if too small for you you can always get another. =) I did the ... Read more

I paid $1500 to go on this cruise and got food poisoning on the third day and missed St Thomas and Tortola. The worst part is that the cruise line does not take any responsibility for cruisers getting food poisoning and make you pay for ... Read more
