We wanted to sail the Caribbean and found we could book a reasonable flight on Southwest to Puerto Rico for a few days and then cruise St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Curacao and Aruba - all 'new' places to visit for our family (me, my husband, my 14 year old). Ship was clean, staff was friendly, Balcony Suite was wonderful - I love using the balcony to read and get away from the tv, while my husband and daughter can enjoy a tv movie. Food is excellent. LOVED the dinner murder mystery in Giovani's Table Restaurant. Song and Dance show was fun and not too crowded, so easy to get a seat. Loved the Zumba on deck/poolside and my husband and daughter liked the court time when they switched to volleyball. Excursions went smoothly too - lots of history lessons and information about the islands. Shopping is always fun too. Wish they had more court time/space. My husband and daughter used it for volleyball, but the net was only set up for an hour, 3-4 times during the week.

Many choices of relaxation or activities!

Cabin Review

Cabin 7658
(I'm not sure what our room was called.) We had a Balcony room with 2 twin (1 king) beds and a couch/bed - a bit different from the standard roll-out-bed-couch, so more comfortable. Room slept 4 but we only had 3 and were glad we didn't have a 4th person. Bathroom was big enough and a full side of cabinets and desk top for your travel items. Balcony had a table and 2 reclining chairs, very nice for reading or napping!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Island Tour
    Great bus tour with talk of island. 4 stops too! I short hiking area of the 2nd tallest island rock, Natural Bridges, Lighthouse (if you want to tour it - that's a separate excursion) and a less populated beach of beautiful white sand and blue water (not clear - but cloudy-white-sand-water). and many free hut-umbrellas for shade.

  • Curacao
    It was an OK bus tour and OK Mamba beach. Tour ONLY stopped at Curacao Liquor and wasn't that fun for the non-drinkers. Beach had a break-wall; so it was like swimming in a salt water pool - no exciting waves. Tour on bus/history was good. Curacao - with it's oil refineries, has a ugly feel to it, despite the fun colored homes.

  • San Juan
    We spent a few days at Hilton Caribe and walked/cab-ride around old San Juan Forts. So much history and parks to explore!

  • Zip-lining
    Only 4 zip lines with 20 people in a group waiting their turn. So zip line part was just OK. Would have preferred less people and a chance to do the zip line twice. Bus ride with tour of St. Kitts was good.

  • Catamaran Tour
    LOVED Catamaran 'Stars and Stripes' tour. Fun to snorkel and see seaturtles and a ship wreck and even sitting on a sailboat in the rain on the way back. Rum punch on the way back was delicious too (fruit punch for the non-drinkers).
