We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the dates that it was offered. We celebrated our wedding anniversary on the cruise and had an amazing time. We travelled with our 2 children, ages 9 and 12. They did not go to Adventure Ocean as it was filled with Spanish speakers. We thoroughly enjoyed all the islands, Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire. We thought that after those islands, going to St. Kitts was a bit of a downer but we understood it was a change because of the hurricane. We were transported to the ship as a compliment. That was well organized, we did not take the transfer from the ship to the airport as it was very chaotic. There was a coach bus that transported the guests, but the luggages were packed in a moving truck and followed behind the bus to the airport. Just imagine that you boarded the bus first and your luggage was loaded first on the truck and you are the first terminal at the airport! The time to remove all the other thousands of luggage before they get to yours would take a long time and the potential for missing your flight out would greatly increase. I suggest that a local taxi as a better plan. Overall, we had a nice time. We did notice that the food choices,they were more of the same most days at Winjammer. I think that some revisting of the menu choices must be done soon. The staff were more or less ok, no issues for us. We had my time dining which was perfect for us. That selection just made the entire time more relaxing instead of being stressed if we missed our scheduled dining time. No issues with the servers there as well If I may, I found that the photos are a tad expensive. Since there is the digital option, the prices for the prints could be less and if a digital package is purchased, as a bonus, give the selected prints as well. The selected prints are already printed and instead of trashing them, offer them to the guests. Aruba had the longest time in port and was very appreciated. We toured as a local and was able to sample cuisine without being rushed for time. I would highly recommend Zeerovers, as a restaurant for lunch stop if you are seafood lovers. The shrimp were freshly caught and deliciously served on a deck that extends in the sea. The fish is fresh and you choose the size and it is fried and served with sweet plantains and french fries. an absolute must do venue for food. We headed to Baby beach for some swimming and snorkelling in the clean, clear water. Very beautiful sun kissed white sand beach, torquoiuse water and chairs for rentals along with a bar for drinks. We shopped in the port for our souvenirs. The staff was friendly and the prices were very reasonable. We wanted everything that had Aruba written on it! Overall, we had a good time and can't wait to cruise again.
