My husband and I traveled on the Dawn Princess 5 years ago and enjoyed every minute of it!!! The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly. The food was better thant we expected. The islands we toured were gorgeous. We decided to go on the Carribbean Princess this time because of the itinerary. We visited 5 islands in 7 days the last time. We were exhausted when we got home. We are only touring 3 islands this time in 7 days. My advice is to stay on the ship one of the days when everyone is out touring. I thought the islands-St.Kitts, and Barbados were not hat appealing. Do visit St. Thomas, and St. Marten was our favorite by far.
