We so thoroghly enjoyed this 12 day cruise that we want to book another one on the Anthem of the Seas. Fantastic crew, fabulous food, great entertainment and onboard shopping. We are now spoiled!! We were even allowed to bring a bottle of wine each for our cabin and cans of pepsi. We did not buy a beverage package but chose to purchase beverages when we dined or went to the theatre. Get to the pool early as the loungers fill up quickly. Be care of floors by elevators as they are slippery. Lots of hand sanitizers everywhere and staff make sure you wash your hands (20 second rule) before you may enter the Windjammer. Try the puzzle break room to challenge your thinking skills. Would definitely recommend zip lining in Haiti and the bbq on the beach was delicious. Avoid the side alley there as locals are very intent on having you purchase their goods. Also, go to the beach that is all sand, not the one by the zip line as it is very rocky and your feet sink in the sand making it hard to get out of the water. The pineapple rum drink in a real pineapple is very good. Didn't care for the cocunut rum drink in coconut shell. Martinque was our least favorite port. Loved the others. In Barbados we paid van driver $25 pp plus tip to take us on a 2 hour tour. Saw where Rianna grew up, where she stays at Sandy Lane (as does Simon Cowell), the resort section of the island, the sugar cane plantation where we enjoyed watching the green monkeys. It was Sunday so a lot of church goers and shopping area closed. Duty free open. Take water taxi in St. Maarten for beach and shopping.
