Adding my vote for the Hilton. We stayed there and found it to be pricey, but lovely. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The beach was absolutely gorgeous.

The luxury ships we've been on are SeaDream I and Hebridean Princess. SeaDream has just 112 passengers per vessel and Hebridean Princess tops out at 49 passengers! I can't even imagine getting on a...

Our very first cruise was on RCCL's Vision of the Seas, one of their smallest ships. It was a four night cruise in the Baltics. We had a good time, but my husband didn't like all of the nickel and...

I live in Germany now and have them sent from a farm in South Carolina. Every Saturday, it's grits time... 30 minutes in salty water equals a taste of home!

Wow... 15 people on a cruise! That is amazing!

And I am also amazed about the grits. I remember asking about grits before our first SD cruise and people on this board kind of laughed at me! ;p

It's been awhile since my last SD cruise, but when I was last on, the food was often Asian inspired. They also had a very extensive raw and vegan menu for those who are into that. Breakfast...

I'll be honest. I love SeaDream, but I do get motion sickness when I cruise with them. It's happened on all three of my SD cruises. I don't think these ships have stabilizers, so when the water is...

If you haven't heard of Hebridean Island Cruises, you may want to give them a look. I've sailed with them four times. Yes, you'll spend a lot of money to get onboard, but everything is taken care...

I recommend SeaDream Yacht Club. It's a small ship, all inclusive, and tends to be focused on younger couples. The staterooms don't have balconies, but it's not hard to find private areas outside. ...

I still use the leather key card holder from our last SeaDream cruise as my actual wallet. :D

I know my husband and I have hung out with solo travelers before, but it seems like the mood of every cruise is different. Sometimes it's not just couples, either, because there are times when large...

I think you're on the wrong board. Hebridean Island Cruises doesn't do crossings.

Your review makes me want to book another SeaDream cruise. It's been too long!

We did the Xtreme Circumnav with Adventure Antigua.

We stayed at the Wind Chimes Inn, which is right by the airport. It's no frills, but the service is very good and you can sit on the balcony and watch planes take off and land. I definitely would...

I started looking at their offerings. Hebridean lost a great hotel manager to Viking Ocean Cruises.

I look forward to reading about your experiences! One of my favorite Hebridean staffers jumped ship for Viking Ocean Cruises. :D

I'm not on the cruise, but I have been on an Antigua to Barbados cruise with SeaDream. I would love to visit Antigua again, even though I got a horrific sunburn there!

Neither of SeaDream's two ships have balconies, but I have found that there is enough space that I don't miss not having one. I've always been able to find a quiet spot when I wanted one. Your...

Actually, we did an Antigua to Barbados SD cruise in November 2011. I really enjoyed Antigua and would love to go back. You had a better airport experience than I did.

Hebridean Princess requires passengers to be at least nine years old, but on most voyages, I've been among the youngest about. I am 45 now!

I feel lucky because of three voyages on SeaDream, I...
