Just returned from the Southern Caribbean excursion this past week on the Galaxy, and would welcome your questions about the itinerary, food, staff, islands, etc.
A very robust itinerary, with lots of island hopping and unlimited opportunities to explore each island via land, sea or in some cases by air. The ship is splendid, she has the unique quality of being a megaship with over 1800 passengers, yet feeling intimate and uncrowded (except on the day at sea, when the "chair hogs" come out)...still lots of nooks and crannies to avoid the chair hogs.
The dining experiences are varied and the overall quality is quite good considering the staff are preparing over 9,000 meals per DAY! Staff helpful, available, and trying to honor their logo of offering service "beyond expectations". Entertainment staff works hard at offering a pleasant evening's activity. Music was almost always available....try to make it up to the 11th deck for the sail away parties with Vibz playing as you leave the quaint port cities.
Shore excursions are plentiful and varied....a note of caution to the more adventuresome, sometimes the acitivity you plan to do on your own is not always available, because the cruise line has purchased ALL of the available spaces on catamarans, speed boats, etc.
Look forward to hearing from folks who are scheduled to cruise with the Galaxy in the next several weeks.
