We had a great time! The ship was spotless the crew very helpful and friendly. The food was good - tasty, plentiful and with great varity. They didn't "nickel and dime" you. The excursions were fund. We did the dune buggies on Grand Turk which I would recommend. It was also nice to do open dining so you could go eat when you felt like it. We were open to sitting with others and had great conversation over dinner that wouldn't have been possible other wise. Half Moon Cay was gorgeous.

The food was good with nice presentations and good taste without the silly strange combinations. If you didn't want to go to the dining room (Rembrandt) you could go to the Lido. Food there was buffet style. Huge salade bars and fruit. Excellent sandwiches. There were plenty of desserts. The eggs benedict were the best I've ever tasted. Coffee, water, ice tea and lemonade were free. Wine was what you would pay at an upscale restaurant. We didn't go to the bars

The stateroom was spotless with a nice verandah. When the ship was at sea it could be a little too breezy to be out there. There is a small frig and a television with a DVD player. They ran a history, places to shop, things to do in each port of call on a constant loop on one channel. The room stewards were great and very helpful and courteous. The bed was big and pretty comfortable. The bath room was nice. They provide a hairdryer. We unloaded the hospitality frig and put in our own wine, soda and candy without a problem or comment.

Activities were set up for an older crowd so if you want climbing walls this isn't a ship for you. The pools were nice and not very crowded. A lot of people had a great time playing trivia challenges in the Exploration Cafe which makes latte's etc. for an additional charge, but less than the chain coffee stores. The shows were fun and you don't want to miss the crew's performance of indoneasian dances and humor. They run abridged versions of all performances on the television the next day, same thing with the movies.

We did the dune buggies on grand Turk, and horseback riding and jet skiing on Half Moon Cay. I wanted to do the zip lines on St. Thomas but we ran out of time. The first night on board make your spa appointments and that first night they give discounts. Everything is written down so there should be no confusion. Most of the towns were one big jewelry store. You had almost as good a selection in the ship shops and the ship board items were less expensive than the ones on shore.

I would go again. It was great fun.
