Sail Date: Oct 2022
Cabin: Ocean View 7
Port of Aruba
Sunset Bar  
Best place for morning coffee

We like to have relaxing days at sea on a ship with a good outdoor promenade - preferably one that accommodates deck chairs - where we can contemplate the sea, watch for flying fish and be mesmerized by the bow making swirling, foamy waves as it plows through the blue water. We don't care about flashy shows in the theater or trivia games or 'white nights' with pulsating beats on the pool deck. We like quiet mornings on the fantail with coffee at sunrise. A little reading and conversation and then a sweet roll or eggs benedict before it gets too busy in the Buffet.

We still don't use the elevator and generally sleep in an oceanview cabin closer to the waterline, so we get lots of exercise by climbing stairs several times a day. A good game of ping pong before lunch is a must and an afternoon nap after getting a bit of sun - in as quiet a corner we can find - is usually on the daily schedule.

Dressing up for cocktails and pre dinner dancing is all we want for evening entertainment. A couple of foxtrots and a samba, if we can get it, while sipping a good martini makes us happy. The fact that 5-7 is Happy Hour for Elite and above was a wonderful surprise!

Cabin Review

Ocean View 7

The cabin was just a bit small, but it was pretty clean. (once I found a couple of dead french fries - not ours - under the wardrobe while looking for a dropped earring, so I guess it wasn't PERFECTLY clean). We got ice everyday as I asked and there were new towels all the time. The suitcases fit under the bed all right and the bed was comfy.

Port Reviews

Aruba

Because it was Sunday, we got a taxi to the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's witnesses. Enjoyed the Sunday meeting and then went out to eat with new friends to O'Niel Caribbean Kitchen and had a delicious dish with goat meat and traditional Caribbean style bread. Fabulous!!

Curacao

We only got off to get a couple things at a drugstore. The port is lovely - obviously the town is trying to attract cruisers. The free wifi in the 'shopping mall area' was a real bonus. Met some nice women at the carts Jehovah's witnesses use to preach and they directed us to a local drugstore where we found everything we needed at an excellent price! People in the store were very friendly and helpful, too.

Grenada

We chose this cruise because we like Celebrity Millenium class ships AND we could visit our granddaughter who had moved to Grenada to marry her husband.

What a beautiful, lush green island!! We toured as much as we could in the few hours there - saw Etang Lake and some wonderful views from the rainforest high above the sea. Excellent port - wish more cruises stopped there.

Got spices that smell wonderful

St. Lucia

We did not take a tour so just walked around the town. It is a sad, poor, dirty place. The town does not seem too interested in making the port more accessible or visitor friendly, unfortunately.

King's Wharf

Only got off to look for a shirt. Never found one we liked. A bit disappointing - especially after having to pay $40 per person for the privilege of stopping there!
