This was a surprise trip for our 15th wedding anniversary. It was our first cruise and we will be using this cruise line again. We didn't run into any unfriendly staff members they were always ready to help. We went for 7 days and wished we had done another week. Most of the individuals on this cruise were in there upper 20's and on. If you are looking for a "party" ship this is not one I would recommend. All the ports we stopped in were great except I could do without St. Marrten. We did an excursion there and was not impressed at all. Next time we will just get a taxi and go to the resort for the beach area. Princess Cays was wonderful except they said all we would need is our room card. We didn't take any money so therefore was not able to buy some items for sale at the little stands by the beach. St. Thomas I could stay for 2 days there. We did an excursion and it was great. We ate at Cuzzins on back street and the food was great. If you go eat early there it does get packed and it's small. I could also spend 2 days at Grand Turk. That was the place to be Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville is awesome.

The food on the trip was awesome. We had the 8:15 seating which worked out great. We had dinner every night at the Botticelli. The sushi and wine was great at Vines. We would go about 7 and have a little sushi and wine until dinner. The pizza and ice cream was great at the pizza and ice cream bar. I could not find a good margarita at any of the bars. I like strawberry and of course they use a mixer type so it was not good, so I tried a regular one and it didn't taste any better. The ultimate mai tai's are excellent. We gained about 4-6 pounds the whole week we were there!!

Our steward was AWESOME!!! We always had a clean room and clean towels. They clean once in morning and then at night they would come and clean again. We were in a suite w/balcony oceanview. It was so nice at night having our covers turned back w/chocolates on our pillows!! They don't make animals with the washcloths that's another cruise line we were told, but they do make a fan out of your washcloth and then place it in the handtowel.

We fell in love with the band Fusion so we followed them most of the time. The ship always had some kind of activity and that was nice especially for the days at sea.
