This cruise was a Christmas present for the two of us. We decided to do a 12-day cruise out of Baltimore as we live 20 minutes from the port. Embarkation and check-in was smooth and handled very professionally and pleasantly. We had a nice afternoon sitting in the Solarium and exploring around it (found the Park Cafe and got a delicious egg salad sandwich and chocolate chip cookies!). Once we got into our cabin, we found it very clean and comfortable. Our cabin attendant, Laura, was pleasant and greeted us cheerfully. Then on to dinner in the Main Dining Room, where we met our servers for the week - Lulana and Jess. Again - so delightful! When we mentioned that we are vegetarians and there was just one vegetarian option on the main menu, the maitre d' was happy to provide us with the vegan menu and made a note that we were to receive the Indian entree as well. So our food was amazing!! We often had breakfast in the MDR as well - and it was delightful! Best excursion was our catamaran sail/snorkeling trip in St. Thomas. The Stars and Strips crew was pleasant and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the complimentary beverages and lunch! I think we found the volcanic mud experience on St. Lucia to be our least delightful excursion. The trip across the island to the volcano was really pretty and the lunch at the restaurant selected by the excursion company. But the mud itself - meh. We had a grand time playing the Love & Marriage Game. We lost, but it was fun and the prizes we were giving to just go away were great! Also had fun with the Karaoke and the Finish the Lyric and the Beanbag Toss games in the Centrum! Possibly the highlight of the evenings was our visits to the Schooner Bar, where Mr. H crooned to us. Still humming Bed of Roses... All in all - what a great vacation. We enjoyed every minute thoroughly and will definitely be on another cruise as soon as we possibly can!

So Much Fun!
