Island Hopping Southern Caribbean

We chose this cruise for its Southern Carribbean itenarity. We visited 5 islands in 6 days with only one sea day which we liked as well. Starting in San Juan we flew in the day before to enjoy the city of Old San Juan. We stayed in the Sheraton OSJ which is a great location right across the street from "some" of the cruise terminals. Be advised that there are two different terminals in OSJ and our ...

We actually choose this cruise because of the unbelievable price and the beautiful islands we would be visiting. The staff were so friendly even if you were just passing them in a hallway, they would always have a smile and say hi. This one woman at the buffet providing hand sanitizer was the happiest person I ever met. She would greet each guess by saying “washy washy, happy happy!” The cruise ...

Great process for embarkation. Smooth and fast Cabins clean and spiffy. Cabin Steward was always available but did not need to have him fix any problems with cabin. Refurb of ship is quite nice. Very evident they spent attention to making inside beautiful However carpets are showing age in cabin and hallways. Dining was excellent. Pretty much no enrichment ...

We wanted to try out Norwegian because we are trying out different cruise lines to see which we like. This was one of the largest we have been on. The shows were wonderful. The staff and crew were very customer oriented. They were always polite and greeted you with a smile. The ship was kept clean. The restrooms were never dirty. The food was great. We will definitely cruise with them again once ...

Since I'm not a total pessimist, let me start with the positives: - The majority of the crew was fantastic (outside of some rude guest service folks at night). - The musical entertainment throughout the ship was solid, and so were the magician and comedian. - Loved the ports and the shore excursions that we went on (Diamond Falls in St. Lucia, beach break in Barbados, lobster cruise in ...

It was amazing the first step on the platform. I was in aw. I was so excited to cruise around and see beautiful islands with my wonderful husband. It was beautiful almost every day. The ships staff were beyond helpful. I love the hibachi food it was delicious. The aqua and Venician were good as well. There was a great show with acrobats and dancing and then after we got to thank all the crew ...

Fun Cruise... but bring a compass!

We chose this cruise because of it's ports, we came into San Juan same day (which is always a risk) but weather was not a problem, instead if it was a Boeing Jet that was. We fortunately had no problem and trip from SJU via a taxi ($26) was effortless. Embarking the ship was the smoothest ever, we moved along nicely and were on ship quickly. Found deck chairs near pool side which is abnormal. ...

My boyfriend and I went on the 7-day southern Caribbean cruise out of San Juan in March of 2019. Went down a day early and stayed in San Juan overnight. We were able to check out Old San Juan with the few hours we had that evening. We are in our early thirties and had a really fun time on this cruise. We weren't sure what to expect based on previous reviews, but this cruise did not disappoint for ...

The cruise was fantastice and the service impeccable. Picked the cruise because I had family already booked on it. The room itself was large and well laid out with quality furnishing's and many amenities. Picked the owners' suite due to the floor to celing windows in anticipation of captivating views from inside the room. Unfortunately not able to enjoy the views during the day because if you ...

We took this cruise because many of our NCL crew friends were together on the cruise. We have sailed eleven times on the Dawn. Living in central Massachusetts it is easy to sail out of Boston where the Dawn spent her Spring to Autumn for the last eight years, This has allowed us to gain many staff friends from housekeeping to entertainers.. We left out of Boston 6 times. Taking ...
