Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2012
Cabin: Large Interior Stateroom


This was one of the smaller inside cabins we have been in. Only about 136 sq feet and room for a chair and not a sofa. Having said that, there was plenty of storage, the bed was very comfortable, and the air conditioning was whisper quiet and very effective. This was the last cruise before the dry dock, so the TV was an old-school 15inch set which was a little disappointing. The stateroom attendant, Rolando, kept the cabin very clean and was friendly.

The bathroom was tiny, but good enough for dealing with brushing teeth and putting in lenses. The shower area was very restricted so we always headed up to the spa area and showered in the spacious sauna and steam areas in the locker rooms.

Cabin Review

Large Interior Stateroom

Cabin K

4055 - this is an adjoining cabin with the door blocked by a chair. Negatives: very small, bathroom tiny and I could hear my neighbors next door.Positives: good bed, good aircon, walk to centrum in 1 minute, close to lifts.

Port Reviews


Not a great fan. Either beach or zip line, but that is the sum of your choice. There was also local goods at the shops, but nothing worth buying unless you felt guilty for the starving people begging you to buy something. I did not feel very safe in this area and was relieved to get back on the ship. Dont bother if you are over 40.

San Juan

Very interesting, especially if you can get the free trolley tour which shows you the whole of San Juan Island. Again, a very poor and broken island, with some dodgy areas you would not want to walk down. Historically interesting, but a quick walk into town and back would be enough.

St. Maarten

Great selection of shops and bars along the beach. Phillipsburg is fun place and very warm. I could spend some time here very happily.


Why oh why do they come here on a Sunday when everything is closed. Managed a beer and free wifi at a cafe, then back on the boat.
