i took your cruise in march 2004. serenade out of san juan southern carib. i highly recommend arriving 1 day early at least. we stayed at the radisson on condado. god forbid your flight is delayed.......also, you get that whole first day on board to enjoy, you wont be exhausted. we hit the beach in st thomas and st maarten, then took mini speed boats in st lucia, horse back riding in barbados and kayaking in antigua i believe. the boat was great! it has both a portifino and chops grille restaurant. i highly recommend reservations 1 night at both. rock climbing wall, mini golf, etc. my favorite cruise to date.
