Offered a great deal and good itinerary. Arrived a day ahead in San Juan to sightsee but trollies were being diverted for event but had a nice time exploring locally around hotel. Taxi from Old San Juan to Pan Am Pier was $28. Arrived early to pier and boarded soon thereafter with time to explore the ship. Rooms were ready at 2pm. Had a very nice lunch in Maderno. Food was very good. Family Suite is quite large. Dining table small for room size. Left closet hangers too big for closet & not usable, can't close door, but I always bring extra hangers. As Plat+ got 4 water bottles and 2 champagne. Dined in most of the restaurants.Cagney has great steak prepared to perfection. Bistro - mushroom soup & Dover sole were very good. Mushroom risoto in LaCucina was good. Bamboo had good egg drop soup and spring rolls. Both the chicken/shrimp noodle bowl and peking chicken needed a brown sauce. Had trout in LosLobos. Sauce was too spicey. Stick to taco or barrito. Entertainment was good. Elements was exceptional. Did Segway Safari & Beach in St Lucia which was great. Terrific guides. Countryside Horseback in St Kittls. Went up to top of mountain passing farms, fields of flowers, baby goats. Beautiful views on top and great pictures. Beach Rendezvous in St Maarten was great (Harbor Bay Beach). Water was warm and crystal clear with wonderful 3ft waves.Will definitely go there again.

Friendly smaller ship - terriffic staff - nice room - good shore excursions
