It was the best choice between Carnival and Disney! After our cruise my family was thoroughly convinced that ROYAL CARIBBEAN is the way to cruise!!! The ports of call were part of the reason for sailing with RC. NASSAU ,Bahamas was an excellent and inexpensive way to tour the Atlantis Hotel and it's water parks( we took a taxi,paid a total of $28.00 and did our own sight seeing.) With Charlotte Amalie,USVI we took a two hour tour around the island of St. Thomas. Later that day we went snorkeling on Castawygirl #4 and went to Turtle Cove and Shipwreck Cove( we saw sea turtles,stimgrays,a school of squid and various fish and a ship wreck!) The last port of call was Philipsburg,St Martin! OMG ,the water was calm and so greenish blue it looked unreal! We spent at least 6 hours in the beach soaking up the sun and floating in the crystal clear water( we couldn't believe how quick the time flew while relaxing in Philipsburg!)
The only sad part of our trip was realizing that all good things have to come to an end! Let me tell you about the dining- The Silk restaurant on deck 5 had amazing food( NY strip steak,shrimp coctail,etc.) The buffets at the Solarium and the Windjammer Market place had a wide selection of breakfast foods and dinner cuisine. Our waiters Rhedjie and Patel ( we were table 829 Silk ) were top notch as well as the rest of the wait staff. As far as activities are concerned we enjoyed the mini golf,table tennis,dodge ball(there's so many activites it would take too long to mention.) Our cabin was spacious and had a center view of the bow and heli pad(it was beautiful to see each port head on as we pulled into Nassau,St. Thomas,and Philippsburg! Just aboit every crew member was polite anf artentive. My family is totally sold on Royal Caribbean,we can't wait to go again in the very near future.
Our cabin was located in the bow of the ship on deck 11 and it was about dead center of the front of the ship. It provided the best in cabin view while we were crusing and while we were pulling into port! The room's location was absolutely perfect!!! I would like to have that room again the next time we sail! It had ample bedding for my family of five!
Everything concerning embarkation was extremely organized;Part of the satisfying experience that convinces my family to go with Royal Caribbean!
The hotel was amazing. There was so much to see we spent much time takng pictures!
We had no idea all of the attractions concerning Atlantis were within walking distance! There were many sights and sounds to see and it was well worth it!!!View All 765 Atlantis Resort Reviews

St. Maarten was gorgeous!! Next time we want to see more of the island!!! Out of all the ports it was my most favorite!
We took a two hour drive sightseeing tour around the island! The mountain views were breathtaking and the winding mountain roads were different(since were I come from we drive on the other side of the road.)View All 115 City Tour Reviews
