Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2015
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean

The cruise was good had a good time. Good excursions, food was good, lots of things to do.The only complaint was the people weren't friendly. I tried to say hello to the people I was eating with and they turned their heads away. There were only four others at the table. I think this anytime dining is messing up the regular dining. Lots of empty tables at the late setting. Another time in an elevator a couple got on and i said hello and they looked away again. I still had a good time inspite of them. The ship could use a little work. Elevators were weird got stuck in one for a few minutes and some of the decoration was pealing off.

The debarkation was terrible mostly because the people wouldn't follow directions.

There were numerous activities trivia, bingo, art auctions, photo sessions, entertainment on the stage was good. Lots of music in atrium, casino bar, pool area.There was comedy shows, dance in the disco, football in the sports bar, and talks on various subjects. You could also just relax by the pool, get a burger at Guy's place, geta taco or burrito at the Blue Iguana, or just have a drink at he Rum bar and Tequila bar.

There is a wonderful spa and fitness center specialty restaurants, and the buffet on the Lido deck also a Fish and chips area. Great entertainment and food.

I would sail on her again given the chance.

Shore excursions are many I did one per port. Barcardi trip in San Juan. the Butterfly farm and tour in ST. Martins, the Brimstone Fort tour in St. Kitts, and the Gibbs Kay stingray encouter in Grand Turk. They were all really great had a great time.

Cabin Review

Cabin Interior 1A 1211

Cabin was clean and well maintained not any noise from people walking by it was at the front of the ship. It was classified as interior but I had two portholes very nice in my opinion.

Stingray Swim

Nice boat ride to Gibbs cay some snorkeling then a encounter with the Atlantic Stingrays. I was very nice but I hurt the bottom of my foot on the ladder getting off the ship. I t seemed very sharp to me bruised the arch still hurts a little. It was a good tour inspite of it.

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Didn't take a tour. Did stay at the Rodeway Inn before the cruise. This hotel has vastly improved since I stayed before. It has undergone a extensive renovation. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant in very good.
