As stated in other reviews, getting onto the ship in San Juan was long and no fun. However we finally boarded after about 1.5 - 2 hours. After boarding we went to the Windjammer for some food and it was pretty good. I've had better, but there are those that have nothing to eat at all so I felt blessed. The food in the dining room was also pretty good. Again I've had better, but it was plentiful and the service was superb. Our room attendant was nearly perfect and remembered our first names from day one. The entertainment was top notch and there's much to do on this ship. I would recommend this cruise to anyone. St Croix: There is not much to do here so plan an excursion, unless you just want to lay on the beach. There is a great beach for that here. St Maarten: Rent a Segway, it was so much fun. This was one of the best ports where we stopped as there is a great beach, plenty of shopping and lots to do. We stopped in a little ice cream stand along the boardwalk and enjoyed some ice cream and free Internet access. Antigua: We thought this was the worst port. There were hundreds of cab drivers all over the town bugging you to death to take you someplace. There really isn't much to do near the dock so we finally quit walking around and got back on the ship just to get away from the cab drivers. So if you plan to get off the ship in Antigua, plan on an excursion. St. Lucia: Very nice island. We took the Aerial Tram up in to and over the rain forest and was a great experience. Our guide was fantastic and the views were amazing. Barbados: This was our favorite as we took the 4 x 4 Island Safari and Cave Expedition. Our guide took us for a long ride showing us much of Barbados and explaining the culture and showing us plants and animals. After dropping us off at the cave, we had free drinks and he took us to the western shoreline where they sometimes have world class surfing. Barbados is beautiful and we'd like to go back there and stay for a month or so. The ship is getting old but she's still very pretty. The golf putting course needs some help. Don't get a cabin anywhere near the Royal Promenade unless you join the festivities most every night. The pounding music will keep you up late. Of course that's with any ship. All in all it was a nice cruise. The food was decent and the service was wonderful. No kids so I didn't rate the children's programs.

Nice ship but needs a little help.
