Sail Date: Dec 2012

What a fantastic holiday - couldn't fault it! This was our first cruise for my 60th birthday so we were unsure what to expect. From the minute we embarked on the ship we were very impressed with the whole set up. The staff were amazing - couldn't do enough for us!

Food was fantastic- buffets and restaurants, excellent service all round. The staff work really hard and were always friendly and helpful. We loved the shows in the Broadway Theatre- very professional. We liked the Ocean bar the best as we met some other couples and could have a chat whilst listening to the excellent duo in there. We chose the AI upgrade and we definately got our moneys worth - we thought initially it was quite expensive at £800 for us both but we were more than happy with the premium brands and often we were given fill ups before our glasses were empty!

We loved the fact that this was an adults only cruise and will definitely look for adults only in future.

Cabin Review

Cabin 5112 - great position. Quiet room near lifts, very good position. Good unobstructed view.

Port Reviews


Gorgeous island!

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

Lovely shopping just off the ship

St. Lucia

Had a trip round then Rodney Beach- much bigger than we expected and quite commercial - very busy beach.

St. Vincent

Not really impressed - volcanic island that had black sand. Did the trip for whale and dolphin watch - really expensive for what it was but we did see some dolphins- no whales though!


Really enjoyed this island - did a tour then went round the spice market - very enjoyable.
