Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2017
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary with 2 couples who were longtime friends. One was a frequent cruiser like us and the other seldom cruised.

We all had penthouse cabins on the 10th deck. They were expansive and comfortable--especially the bed! Bathroom was roomy and storage space abundant. Butler not used much except for ice.

We were able to finagle 4 extra nights at specialty restaurants by being at the reservation desk by 8 AM for those nights we did not have a pre-made reservation. We ate at Polo 4 times, Jaques twice, and Red Ginger and Toscana once. Every meal was a treat except for one lobster dish that was way overcooked. The Main Restaurant was just OK. Terrace Cafe for lunch and breakfast was great as was Waves for burgers, etc.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Cabin PH2

Large bathroom, closet and bedroom. Very comfortable balcony chairs. Door to balcony very hard to open.

Sofa very hard. Bed comfortable.

Port Reviews

St. Barts

Beautiful island with many posh homes and pricey stores. Walked to shell beach--not worth trek--very shelly (HaHa).

St. Lucia

Nothing much there


Been there before but took another sightseeing tour (private van)

St. John (U.S.V.I.)

Took a private tour. Rode to top of mountain for some beautiful views


Least favorite port
