I have to admit I had a great time, contrary to previous reviews. I did not know the Norwalk virus hit the week before we sailed. The ship was clean, the crew went out of their way to be nice. The buffet was decent and the dining room food and presentation was excellent. I find it hard to believe I was on the same ship as the previous reviews. My room was cleaned 3 times daily. Never tried room service. Pizza restaurant was quite good and Emilio was gracious and very interesting to talk with.
Chris, Augusto and Homer took very good care of us in the main dining room.
Due to some mechanical problems, we were diverted from Barbados to Tortola, where we took in scuba diving and snorkeling. My husband took his 1st certification with New Wave (Padi) and was treated extremely well. We did Island tours of St. Maarten/Marten and St. Johns in St. Thomas. St. Johns was breathtaking.
We shopped in Antigua, and took the Kon Tiki boat ride in St. Thomas. It was a blast.
I would definitely recommend the Sun Cruise again. We had a new Captain aboard which might account for the good treatment we had.
