Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2015
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Class 2

Well what can I say. This was our first time cruising so did not know what to expect. The embarkation process went quite smoothly miles better than the process we went through after landing at Miami Airport.

Our first impression of the ship after we boarded was amazing, the decor and cleanliness was first class.

We travelled concierge class which gave us extra services on board, the cabin was nice not as big as we would have liked but still adequate as we did not spend a lot of time in it. The staff who cleaned our room did a great job.

The gym was great along with the spa.

We thought the pools were a bit small we like to swim every morning but this did not cause a problem. The sunbathing areas were very busy during days at sea but the pool staff made every effort to find a space to set up a sun bed for us. The pool bar guys were first class great service and very polite.

The food was good but sometimes in the ocean view cafe it was very salty for our taste. Having said that the choice in there was immense whether it was for breakfast lunch or in the evening.

Dining in the main dining room was nice. The formal nights were a good change a chance to ge really spruced up.

All bars were great we upgraded to the premium drinks package which gave us access to all cocktails etc well worthwhile. My husband especially liked the seaview bar we went there at 5pm when we were leaving each port it had a great atmosphere.

On the ship there was plenty to do whether it was learning to dance or going to a talk in the theatre, pop quiz etc. The only thing we thought was poor was the evening entertainment in the theatre, it was not the standard we were expecting but this didn't bother us too much.

The shore excursions were well organised and ran like clockwork.

Overall the best holiday we have been on brilliant

Cabin Review

Concierge Class 2
Cabin C2 1097

Nice, very comfortable bed, staff kept it very clean.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Bonaire

Very nice port friendly people. Some nice bars on the sea front.

Barbados

Thought this trip was poor, the catamaran only went round the corner from where it was docked. There was an opportunity to see turtles which was good, it then moved to give people a chance to swim to the beach. Not worth the money

St. Lucia

Been to st Lucia before stayed at the body holiday. It was nice to come into the port on the ship, it looked beautiful very green, quite a few markets close by.

Antigua

Been to Antigua many times and had to go back to jolly beach it has the most amazing torquise sea and sandy beaches, best in the Caribbean you have to go and see for yourself.

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

Booked rail and sale, had a catamaran for the first part of the trip, then was supposed to transfer to the train, this part was cancelled due to the rain the night before which was disappointing but that's nature so nothing you can do. Los of nice show around the port

St. Maarten

Loved St Martin very trendy port, lots of shops and trendy bars very upbeat. It was our favourite of all the ports we had been in
