Eastern Caribbean
February 22, 2004


A breeze! Used Fun Pass and was through the line in less then 20 minutes. We were at dock at 12:30p. No problems.


Fantastic in Dining Room! Pedestrian, but adequate, on Lido deck. Eat in dining room every chance you can, the food is great and the service is excellent.


Eastern Caribbean. San Juan, St Marten, and St Thomas. 3 Fun Days at Seas.

San Juan: Complete waste of time given the time we arrived, 5pm. Most shops closed. Senor Frogs was "hopping" but we had the kids.

St Marten: Orient Beach. Excellent! Lots of stuff going on. Kids got used to nudity. Hooked up with a great taxi driver who gives tours also (Man of the Land,)

St Thomas: Sapphire Beach. Highly recommend. Best snorkeling and water activities. (Quiet beach though if you are looking to party).

Fun Days at Seas:

Can not exaggerate the hassle of having to get up early each AM to "reserve" deck chairs. What a PIA! Maybe the nature of the beast on cruise ships but you can keep it! By the last day, people were up before 6:30a to "hold" their chairs. By the way, deck chair wars and the loud music on Lido deck my only complaints. Everything else was great on the boat.

The Boat:

The Boat was in decent shape. You could tell it was well traveled but they do a great job keeping it clean throughout the cruise. For a big ship it was easy to find your way around. Elevators were ponderous though. I used stairs whenever possible.


The people were all polite and friendly. Dining room staff and cabin steward were excellent.


Like clockwork! No issues!
