- Cabin Type: Grand Suite - 2 Bedrooms
I am not a big one for shows, eating at 8 made it hard to see any. Watched them a day later on ship tv. Not much for line dancing and ballroom,swing, etc but those who did join seemed to have a good time. It is hard to find a seat in common areas with the older crowd but with a suite we could find seating in the concierge lounge. The cruise director had a good time and many of the activities were humorous. Perhaps it was due to my first cruise or it being over the Christmas holidays for last year but the presence of the cruise director was non-existent last year while he was everywhere this year.
I don’t have kids and appreciated the lack of kids on the trip. Last year for Christmas they were running around unchecked.
We picked some beach escape excursions and they are just not worth it. Love the catamarans and snorkel. The best of beach, sailing and swimming -no more beach escapes for us. The rum tours on St Croix was great. St Kitts to Nevis Fan2Sea catamaran is a favorite. The biggest issue and it’s a problem we have seen for the last two years are the vendors who really won’t take no for an answer and return repeatedly to sell trinkets, massages etc. When all you want is to soak up some sun. All in all a good trip.have booked again for next year.

BaltimoreEmbarkation was fairly easy. Did have to wait approx 30 min. Parking is easy and safe. Getting off the ship was a breeze due to suite perks. Getting off and to car was less then 30 min. Was home by 9 am (live about 45 min away). Great port for locals.View All 346 Baltimore Cruise Port Reviews
