Just returned from the 11 day Galaxy cruise from Baltimore to Charleston, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, San Juan and Nassua.
The cruise was even better than we expected. The ship is very well designed and was never crowed despite being sold out. The ship was extremely clean and the staff was very friendly and accomadating.
Highlights: very good meals, especially the veal dishes at dinner. Midnight theme parties/buffets- tex-mex night and island night. Gym and Spa.
Children: Our kids 12 and 15 had a great time and said that the cruise was much better than a week that we spent in an all-inclusive island resort last year. The cruise had more to do and offered more freedom.
Tips: Do not purchase island tours on the ship. For example $28 per person for a 2 hour tour of Nassua, we got the same tour for $40 for our family of 4 by negotiating a rate with a taxi driver.
Overall: Our best trip ever. For 11 days everything is totally taken care of for you.
