This was our first small ship experience and we loved it. I was a little worried about not having a balcony but come to find out on a small ship it is just one flight of steps to sitting outside. The cabin had enough storage and space. The outdoor area is large with a bar and also set up in the morning for a continental breakfast. Very small pool and hot tub. The food and service was excellent and our Social Director (Felippe) was the best I have every seen. Everyone on the crew seemed genuinely happy and wanted us to have a great time. Other than Grenada we enjoyed all the ports or I should say harbors...we tendered into most of the small islands....one time we had to take the rubber boats into land...so if you have a mobility problem this could be difficult. Breakfast and lunch is buffet or order off the menu in a restaurant on the top level......dinner is down in the dinning room and is off a menu. You can also sign up to have dinner under the stars.........up on the deck - it was lovely. They also had a barbeque night up on the deck, most food I have ever seen and all of it was great, this was followed by line dancing with the crew. I think we will be hard press to go back to a big ship after such a great time on the smaller ship.......granted it was a little rocky on the first night due to a super moon but it calmed down after that.

Perfect
