  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Went on this cruise due to a very good offer from casino royal. Ports were changed multiple time before sail date due to recovery from hurricanes. Did not take any excursions from the cruise line. Mostly wanted sun and a warm beach, got off at each port went from there. St Thomas enjoyed Beach. St Lucia beach was nice but would never do again, most islands have people walking along selling goods, sometimes I look, sometimes say no thanks this island they actually were rude not taking no with out being angry coming back over and over. Several years ago took tour on island and enjoyed that. Martinique walked to "downtown" first told 5 minute walk after 10 minutes told just 15 minutes more that was okay but just know depending on what part of island you come into could be a walk. Lots of shops more "local" than tourist. Cafes for sandwiches coffee beer generally do not eat much off ship this was no different also my lack of French made it difficult to know what was on menus. Generally would not bother again some might enjoy. Barbados nicest beach took boat from beach to snorkel said we would see turtles but that didn't happen had heard it was matting season but I was still hopeful unfortunately it rained went back to ship early hope to return. Antguia nice beach friendly people.

Ship was smaller than some we have been on less activities of interest lower level of entertainment guess ship with only 2000 vs 4000 doesn't have same budget . Main dining room. dinner was good main waiter was nice entertaining, breakfast was slow lacked variety. Went to buffet for breakfast after multi days in dining room better variety but I prefer sit down. Had dinner one night in buffet because timing back on ship it was good great crepes for dessert.

Room 8085 balcony basic room did think bed was hard and I like a firm bed but slept fine. Couch was very worn needed to be cleaned. Got towel animal 2x heard others that got every night,not a big deal but I enjoy them.

Beach "vendors" push and rude. Two women traveling together might have made us more of a target not sure.
