Our mini-suite was perfect. The balcony was just right for a evening nightcap and watching arrivals and departures. We were on deck 11, only 3 staterooms from the Spa! Such fun! A dip before we went on an excursion, then a dip after with a sauna and maybe a massage to relax before evening activities. Plenty of things to do, sometimes to many, but we had fun. The Special restaurants we chose were fabulous! La Cucina's Italian food was perfect, we went twice! Moderno's Brazilian cuisine was delicious, we ate to much but didn't care. Cagney's was great and Le Bristo was to die for. The excursions we chose, which was hard to do as there were so many, were just right for us. At Aruba we went on the Sea & See Island tour, just fun. At Kralendijk we chose the Bonaire Bus tour. St. George's was the Rhum Runner Party Boat that was exciting and so so much fun! St. Thomas we took the Kontiki Beach and Sightseeing boat, that was a hoot. There were other excursions we took but these stood out. Everything was wonderful. On board we enjoyed the shopping and went a bit crazy but it was fun! We also were very happy with the entertainment we found everywhere. The atrium seemed to always have some entertainment going, All the bars and shows! The Halloween entertainment was so much, nearly every one was costumed everywhere we went. The shows! magic and entertainment was on par with Broadway! There was so much to do and see, why sleep at all? What can I say about the service? We needed a step to enter the bath and Tristan, our cabin guy was able to find a step stool to help us. the morning and evening attention he provided made us feel special. Even though we we on board for 14 days it still felt way too short a time. We are planning another trip and have gotten two more friends to join us. We have to decide when to go even though its going to take a lot of planning. I hope this spring or late summer. Gotta plan. I want go right now! See you soon!

Much Better than I expected, it was wonderful. Planning for next year!

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MX
I loved the cabin, just the right size for two. The balcony was my favorite, I was out there mornings for a cup of coffee and evenings after excursions and entertainment to relax with a glass of wine enjoying the sea air and watching for birds and the luminescent fish under the wonderful view of the constellations. Just wonderful!
