Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom
Traveled with children

Let's start with the check in process. CRAZY!!! Arrive for early boarding between 10-1030. Wait. Then get moved into a Large waiting room to sit for another hour. HMM. At least they provide you coffee and Juice while you wait. Once they call your group to board, Chaos begins as everybody tries to board out of turn.

Sea Days.. Get up before the sun and get you deck chairs!!!! Most are taken before 0830.. Parents. There are only 25 chairs directly in front of the kids play area. Usually taken by 6am. Meaning Somebody wakes up, towels the chairs and goes back to sleep until noon.

-- Adult pool is a standing pool on Sea Days. No swimming or relaxing, Just drinking, belly flops and Cannonballs.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

We had 2 room. The Forward room was loud. You could hear the toilets flushing and the Anchor cables banging

The Balcony cabin was much more quiet.

Port Reviews

St. Thomas

I think we got 90 mins on the beach total. A lot of money for 5 people to pay for 90 minutes.

Tortola

I think we got 2 hours at this beach. Beach was very nice. They have private venders selling drinks, food and crafts at reasonable rates. Again expensive trip for only 2 hours.

Nassau

Food was very basic. Beach is beautiful. This was the second time going to this Island. In order to have time to shop in town we got roughly 2.5 hours. I think you get 4 if you don't want to shop. Disappointing for the cost not to have more time.
