A Fabulous Christmas Cruise
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We were a group of 12 ranging from 3-64. Everyone enjoyed themselves very much and are anticipating this coming Christmas onboard.
We were invited to a vow renewal that took place on board on Christmas Eve. and once again the Hospitality Staff went above and beyond the call of duty.
Our dinner waiter was Sudarmika and Marco. They were great. Dinner service was very good but the lunch and breakfast service became less desirable as the cruise went on. The food was as always Fabulous!!
Our room stewards never came to introduce themselves the entire cruise so I have no idea who they were.
We were unable to dock at Falmouth Jamaica because of the high waves, but the Captain and crew went above and beyond to get approval to go to Montego Bay Jamaica, where the weather was gorgeous and there were no waves. Since we were late getting into port the Captain set it up for us to leave More port later than normal. It made for a great day.
In Roatan we went to a little shop called Made in Roatan. I had seen them on the internet and decided since they are a non-profit organization that is helping the people of Roatan that I would bring them some donations. The owners of the shop Debi and Bob Cowen set us up with our own personal tour guide (one of the families they help). We spent 3 hours touring the entire Island and was really impressed with everything that we saw. My grandson's highlight of the day was feeding and holding the Iguanas.
All in all it was a great cruise and we are ready to cruise this coming Christmas on the Divina. Less
Cabin review: 12062
We had a cabin for 4 people even tho we only had 3 in it. Our cabin was spacious and we had plenty of room. We even had a 3 foot Christmas tree in it with decorations and a 4 foot blow up snowman on our balcony. Our shower was very adequate for the short time we were in it. We had plenty of closet space for our hanging clothes for the 3 of us and enough drawers, we even had empty drawers. All 6 of our suitcases fit under the bed with plenty of clearance. We were in cabin 12062 and we didn't have any noise from the pool deck above in the evening and because we were on the starboard side we had no smell of cigarette smoke which is a big plus for us. The ships layout was very easy to get around and very enjoyable. All in all this was a great cruise and yes, we would cruise with this line again.
