Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2012
Cabin:
Traveled with children

We had high hopes as we boarded the Reflection. The ship is beautiful. Our balcony cabin spacious, and the interior cabin for our children also a good size. The physical presence a nice place to call "home" for the week.

Overall, it was a nice vacation. Was it worth the expense? Not really. It has been awhile since our last cruise, and whether it was this cruise line or cruises in general, it was no longer the relaxed, all inclusive vacation I remembered. To me, it has become a week long sales pitch.

As we boarded, the pitch for drink packages. While we waited for our cabins to be ready, we were encouraged to walk around. At the spa, there were plenty of packages and services available for a fee. At the gym, more services available for a fee. Hungry? You have the buffet and main dining room, but why not try one of the specialty restaurants - all for an added fee, of course. And don't forget the shops, casino or one of the many bars.

Port Reviews

San Juan

Dirty and old.

St. Maarten

We visited Christmas Day, so many shops and such were closed. Still, a pretty area and we'd visit again.

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

Dirty and felt very unsafe. We walked a bit in the shopping area just outside the dock, but boarded quickly.
