- Sail Date: May 2012
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony
We thought the food in the dining room was pretty good. We didn't have one bad meal in the dining room. At breakfast you could always find something you liked and we especially loved the made to order omelet station. The buffet lunch was just ok but again you could always find something you like and I have to agree with a few others...the chicken tenders were really good!!! Can't believe I am saying that about chicken tenders but they were that good.
The service we received was outstanding! From our room steward who kept our room clean, which at times was difficult coming back from and a day at the beach and tracking it in to our cabin to the waiters in the dining room catering to our every request. We really had a great experience with the staff, no issues at all.
There was lots to do on the cruise and I thought our cruise director Philipe was aswesome!!! It's hard to please everyone. Some of things may not have been our cup of tea but the cruise director and assistants really do try to make the experience fun for everyone.
The ports were awesome although it POURED in St. Lucia we enjoyed every port. I do have to say my favorite Islands were St. Thomas in particular Megan's Bay and St. Marten. The water is so blue and clear it's unreal. Our favorite excursions were Megan's Bay in St. Thomas (one of the Top 30 beaches in the world), The Catamaran in Barbados (they had the BEST rum punch of any excursion) and the Golden Eagle Catamaran in St. Marten (the sand was like walking on powder and the water was so blue). Although we loved the people on the excursion in Barbados and the rum punch the beach was rocky which I wasn't crazy about. My boyfriend ziplined in St. Lucia and enjoyed that execursion.
All in all this is one of the best vacations I have ever taken...can't wait to set sail again!!!
