New Years Party (2012-2013) on the high seas
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
This was a family trip. Myself and my husband and my sister and her husband and their (adult) son. Except for the son, the rest of us are over 50. This was the first cruise that we all did that had a pretty aggressive list of port visits. I will describe our trip in three categories: The good, the bad and the ugly.
Ship was in ship-shape. All the public spaces were in great condition including the staterooms. Nothing threadbare. The food was fantastic. The wait-staff were well seasoned. We booked the 'Mystery dinner theater at Portofino's'. The mystery was hokey (but fun). The company (others at our table) was delightful and overall it was worth the $60/person charge as the champagne and wine flowed freely as part of the package.

Cabin review: PR6275 Promenade Stateroom
We were on level 6 which is one level up from the Promenade. We had the PR room. Love the window overlooking the promenade. Makes a psychological difference over an interior room. No, we did not have a noise from the promenade to worry about but looking out the window down to that level did end up picking up someones eyes looking up! That was creepy. Our room was in the center of the ship which was perfect. Personally, I will push my travel agent to book a PR room on deck 8, center, instead. The reason being that we eat breakfast and lunch at the Windjammer on deck 11 which is also where the pools are. I prefer to walk 3 flights of stairs over taking the elevator but 5 flights was really pushing it! Sure it was easier to walk down one level to the Promenade but deck 11 was the critical deck for us. FYI, by walking the steps on all the cruises I've been on, I've found that besides being healthier, I actually ended up loosing weight on each cruise by a couple pounds rather than gaining weight from the wonderful food.Read All Promenade Stateroom (PR) Reviews >>
