We chose this particular cruise primarily for family members who will not fly, so we could show them some fantastic islands. As with any holiday the weather was a big factor. We always choose an inside cabin because the only time we spend in the cabin (sorry stateroom) is to sleep. The cabin is more than adequate, was ALWAYS very clean with an abundant of fresh towels and toiletries thanks to our stateroom attendant, Sydney, who was always very polite and helpful. Lots of cruisers enjoy the “sea days” but our preference would be days in port. All the ports visited were really nice interesting places with plenty to see and do. Our one criticism would be that of the time leaving the ports. Most of the port areas would have something of interest for lots of people in the evenings when they transform and show the true nature of the places, we, and no doubt others, would like to have sampled some of that to get a real taste of the places visited. I assume not staying in port is down to economics, with the cost of the berth and not being able to open the casino, but, I would have thought the cost of fuel to steam all night to cover the distance between islands (less than 100km) would offset this, besides the greener issues of staying in port. I would be interested in what the company has to say about this. We took ALL our meals in the Ocean View as this type of dining suited us as we could come and go as we pleased, we could also see then choose (mix & match) from a wide verity of foods to our taste. We did not appreciate (although it was their job) crew/staff from other venues coming around trying to “sell” us alternative dining, leave us alone we are happy here or we would not be here. It is not made very clear when looking at other venues whether there is a cost involved or if like the Ocean View this is included. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and would recommend it.

Great ports of call.

Cabin Review

Cabin 8145
The cabin was ALWAYS clean, with abundant clean towels and toiletries. Our stateroom attendant Sidney was always on hand and always very polite and helpful. We have always chossen an inside stateroom because of the cost, we see no point in paying extra for the luxury of a suite or balcony as the only time we spend in the room is to use the bathroom and to sleep.
