Sail Date: Nov 2015
Cabin:

We are experienced travelers having toured Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, and North America.

It took my wife 20 years to get me back on another cruise after a Royal Caribbean trip on the Mexican Riviera. I would have skipped this had I known that the lines are affiliated. This is a real nickel and dime operation, with limited entertainment choices that ranged from fairly good to poor to highly offensive. They actually charged extra for some on board tours.

We had a hard time finding the start of our orientation tour, as most of the staff didn't seem to know about it. When we found it, it had too many members to be useful.

Cabin Review

Cabin verandah

Well designed, comfortable, clean. Good balcony shape and size.

Port Reviews

St. Thomas

Marvelous must see beach. Rustic, but good facilities. No A/C facilities.

Barbados

Loud music blasted on the bus, but the guide gave a good narrative. The bus stopped at three different stops along the same string of beaches. One stop would have been better. I didn't go into the water at each of the short stops. Facilities were shabby and hard to find.

Dominica

Some good views on the drive there. A nicer bus would have been appreciated. Facilities at the beach were poor. Couldn't compare with the beaches at Magens Bay or Orient Beach.

St. Maarten

A short drive on a nice bus and five hours, instead of four, at the beach. Good facilities and lots of variety. The best part of the island. Also the least costly tour.

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Cruise terminal is bland and a bit confusing.
