Diamant Cruise Review by Crobru
- Sail Date: June 2012
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
We worried about June "off season" & were met with almost perfect weather (one rainstorm all week, and that was short), not too hot, and with a choice daily of swimming here, walking there, sleeping in if you like - they'll launch the dinghy for just you if you want to go separate, but the attitude of all the folks on the trip was such that we all quickly became friends - no cliques formed, no cross word heard for a week - by anyone!
Can I give it 6's on a scale of 0-to-5?
You don't need to deal in Eastern Caribbean Currency, since everywhere takes U.S. dollars - just arm yourself with lots and lots of ones and fives and tens, since there are places that will struggle to break a $20. Exchange rate is 2.71:1 EC to US, and you should bargain in the local places to get initial prices lowered.
If you're looking to shop at fancy places in port, get your money's worth in calories at the midnight buffet, gamble in the casino, watch a floor show, or wear something other than a bathing suit and t-shirt on most days, this is not the one for you. Take one Hawaiian shirt for the fanciest dinner they have, leave the long pants at home, take loads of sunscreen & reasonable amounts of insect repellent, and expect to enjoy!!
I rated entertainment below 5, since "entertainment" is not part of the concept - that said, I rated it pretty high because I didn't want to be entertained.
