Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2017
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

The original itinerary was changed by the hurricanes to substitute Guadeloupe for the destroyed Tortola in British Virgin Islands.

As Hurricane Irma, Harvey, Maria and Katia barrelled their way round the Caribbean in the Autumn of 2017, we became very worried about whether there would be enough left standing for us to enjoy.

It was a needless concern, because we visiited nine islands and saw no damage.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin JB

Very well appointed and excellent steward. Plenty of room for everything, made possible by the brilliant walk-in wardrobe. Shower/Toilet clean and easy to use. No problems with anything. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet.

Port Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

It’s all very false, man-made and a bit like Disney World. But, having said that, it was clean, friendly, very well appointed, great shops and bars, I enjoyed it. As for going outside Amber Cove - we wouldn’t and I don’t recommend it, based on what other travellers told us. The DR isn’t the cleanest and safest of destinations, apparently.

Martinique

Very French, quite expensive but pretty and the people are friendly.

Grenada

Paradise. Water taxi to the beach and spent the day there. Gorgeous.

St. Lucia

Friendly but chaotic. We felt safe.

St. Vincent

Laid back and friendly. Totally safe. Botanical gardens a little too far to walk so we took a taxi. Spent a peaceful hour in the beautiful surroundings. One of our favourite stops.
