St Croix, St Maarten, Dominica, Barbados and Grenada

Pros: Islands visited, attentiveness of crew, goods tour guides on excursions

Cons: Photo shop developing process missed four of our pictures that we needed to have them print for us, quality of photos not as good as previous crews, elevators should be divided into two banks of three each, or the doors need to stay open longer. Quality of food not very good and variety not as good as previous cruises. Ship is small and Trip was swaying more than other cruises

St. Thomas, St. Croix, Antigua, St. Lucia, Greneda

Pros: Perfect sized ship for this type of itinerary.

Cons: We were expecting more food options in the evening. The buffet closes at 9:30PM and only room service is available after that. Room service was great but menu is limited. Not that we needed to eat more late at night but this is the only real inconvenience I could find about this ship.
