The cruise seemed to be starting off well with smooth and efficient boarding (at least on the cruise line's part -- the port, on the other hand, was a nightmare). We embarked on the early side and enjoyed a pleasant lunch al fresco at the ... Read more

We booked this cruise in May 2014 when we were on the Windsurf through a program that is no longer available. I believe that the program was called destinations; it provided an additional 5% off of the 5% already given to pervious guests. ... Read more
