This was a wonderful, low key cruise. The ship is small with just 450 people and nothing was ever crowded and I never felt cramped. The staff were wonderful, helpful and friendly - all of them. I especially liked eating at the Patio Grill. It was a small but varied menu for lunch each day and a larger menu for dinner There are numerous bars with great bartenders who have fun stories and remember what you like to drink. The Grill by Thomas Keller had great service but none of us found the food to be that outstanding and preferred the dining room or Colonnade for dinner. The suites were wonderful and the balconies were put to good use. We were on the 14 day exotic Caribbean and frankly the ports were not of much interest. We had two beach parties that included caviar and champagne - both were a lot of fun. The passengers were very friendly and relaxed. All alcohol, except high end wine, was included and was very good brands. This was not a get drunk party boat. It was very relaxed and sophisticated in a non-snobby way. Very smooth embarkation and disembarkation.
Really nice and comfortable. Would have liked it a little cooler but that is just me. It was generally around 73 degrees F. The veranda was wonderful - so glad we got a cabin with one. We used it frequently.
This was a great beach party
arranged our own shore excursion to see Death in Paradise locations
