  3. Star Pride
Was an excellent itinerary. 9 nights from Barbados to Aruba. Enjoyed this ship experience very much; staff was absolutely the best EVER. Can only think of 2 negatives and they would not deter us from going back. 1) The ships entertainment left a little to be desired. From a quality standpoint. Perhaps due to it being a Holiday cruise (over Thanksgiving). Their limited amount of songs tended to repeat. 2) I think the ship could do a better job with the shore excursions; there were several hiccups on a couple stops. And I think everyone rolled with it well. But at this level you would expect a little better. That being said. this was perhaps the best food we have had at sea in over 20 years. The staff was absolutely fabulous and amazing in every way. The itinerary was something that you couldn't get on just any ship. And the feel of a small ship was so appreciated. Can't wait to go again...just need to check out new itineraries and dates.! 5 Stars.
