Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

I chose this trip because the ABC islands are really nice to visit. We have been there four times. I also wanted a cruise for a friend who was new to cruising.

In sum:

-food especially the sushi at lunch was good. But the station closed at 1400 and our tours ended just a few minutes past this time. Other lunch stations on the Lido stayed open until 1430.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

The cabin was ok. The balcony allowed us to dry clothes and snorkelling gear.

Port Reviews

Half Moon Cay

It was fun to swim with the stingrays.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

We travelled for two hours by car and then 30 mins by boat to a sand bar in the middle of the ocean. The snorkelling was fabulous. A kid took me through the coral and then wanted a tip, which was fine with me.


We went to see turtles. The water was clear and I got really good pics.


The tour was not as good as hoped as we did not stop much for photos. We are going back to Curacao for a better tour.
