Sail Date: Dec 2016
Cabin: Balcony

The area was beautiful this is my 9th cruise. We took a excursion at each port. we purchased these from the ship. Two of the four were awful. We did the quad adventure in st Marten, it traveled only on very busy streets though traffic, you could not enjoy your tour because you spent the whole time keeping from getting killed by trucks. At st Thomas we did the snorkel beach break st johns, this was a terrible choice . you spend 1 and 1/2 hours to get there passing many great beaches, stay for an hour to travel 1 1/2 hours back. no chairs on beach nothing not worth the money. When I told the cruise ship staff I was met with rude indifference. They really need to up their customer service! The entertainment is way below par . second city is the same every cruise. same skits over and over not funny very boring. maybe they should invest in real comedians.
