booked a year ago on smaller ship but biggest room

penthouse suite: read review of room we do separately.

flew in day early to San Juan and stayed at el convento

nice and local but not 5 star but I liked local flavor

toured around city and ate local food

was nice to rest before rush to port next morning


suite:

amazing. received so many amenities

see later

anu was our butler and Redford our cabin attendant

both are amazing and stellar

dining:

luminarie: for suite only. zouhaier maitre d' amazing. all wait staff team and beverage person amazing. order off their special menu or can get anything from the MDR. they will get you anything within reason that is not on the menu that night. bar service was fabulous. the maitre d' went above and beyond to take care of us and check on us. we never waited more than 5 minutes. service impeccable.

room service: every day our butler served us in room. mostly we ate on dining table on veranda for the view and sun. always very good but we dont eat heavy breakfast most of time. service always on time and good with warm food. only breakfast we tried and planned the night before for food and time and was perfect.

tuscan grill: ate their twice. service fantastic and maitre d also amazing. never waited. all specialty were included on our suite. meat and pasta wonderful. sommelier was amazing even though I was novice he picked the wines for me.

le petit chef: superb service and meal. the light show on our dinner plates before each course was just amazing. you will have to google it to watch it. lots of fun and made the meal even more fun. we had lobster and steak etc just wonderful. two menu options only so choices might be limited for some but not us.

didn't try any others

shore excursions:

1. st Thomas: we did the land and sea. good but we had been before and seen it. did shopping downtown.

2. st kitts and nevus: major shopping we had planned month or more in advance with diamonds international and the port shopping team director Vince helped us in advance. we had specific diamond and watch desires and the DI store had everything ready and prepared for us in advance knowing our wants. they had VIP lunch served in store for us. we mad some very nice purchases at great prices! by researching ahead of time they had variety of options for us at that store to choose from. it was awesome.

then we did rail car toor and catamaran tour. wonderful to learn about the country and really enjoyed this

3. st Lucia; had been 15 months prior so shopped on port for couple hours. used it as a recovery day and relaxing day on our deck jacuzzi and lounge chairs. calm afternoon after morning port time. very nice Rolex store (harry jewelers).

4. antigua: land and sea tour and looked at shops in port. toured st johns capital and others. learned a lot. had great lunch on the catamaran part of tour. team really friendly with food and drinks included.

5. barbados: never been. best tour of all. wild safari 4x 4 and wildlife preserve. my wife and I love animals and we saw the feeding of the monkeys and many other animals. you can get right up close and great photos. we saw lots of other animals goats/sheep elsewhere on the island. saw rhianna the singer from Barbados birth home and current home and the only 5 star resort in Caribbean is on this island (tiger woods married there) and we saw outside of this.

port team: cant say enough about Ricardo and Veronique who helped us a lot. they have VIP cards and really help get the prices down quite a bit. and no tax or duty! the main thing in the Caribbean is that you have so much to choose from. it was valentines cruise for us and my wife wanted some earrings and we had huge selections to choose from. the two ship port shopping team members assisted us and taught us so much about making good decisions, who to buy from, and what was a good deal or not. thanks to them!

entertainment:

on ship we went to one hour show every night. it was very good but not as good as some other ships. we still enjoyed it. two nights were comedians, one night dueling twin brothers on violins, one night celebrity song/dance show, one night three NYC singers and tonight we haven't seen yet. we enjoyed them all but remember not 2 hours broadway shows like some ships have (still very good)

we didn't go to bars

had all package and room fully stocked with alcohol as needed

didn't go to classes, bingo, etc

with 5 out of 6 sea days no time for other stull

we were on island all days most of time

there was music everywhere and seemed nice but we didn't do much else

went to one lecture on last day about crew life which was educational

didnt use much of ship because our room amazing

we wanted time off work, catch up time, personal time

fair amount of other activities we just didnt use

movies, bars, bingo, classes, etc

gym:

I used every day

smaller than other ships I have been on but great for me

just usual stuff

I didnt do classes etc

services on ship:

we received the 4 perk which was great

inlcluded wifi, drinks, gratuities, onboard credit

that was great.

our cabin had other perks like included all dinner locations and more

we had full laundry service, beverage, dining

embarkation:

get there early in in suite! do not go at 12 or later

DO NOT WAIT IN LINE.

look for priority boarding for suites

we got put on in 5 minutes after we found suites attendant in port area

we got on 1130 No guarantees but could get on by 11am or sooner

disembark:

not done yet
