Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2012
Cabin: Balcony

This was our first b2b cruise. We sailed on the Grand over Christmas and New Year, sailing the Eastern then the Southern Caribbean. We flew in a day before sailing on Dec. 21st and stayed at La Quinta Hotel. We booked through Hotel.com so didn't know our room was on the fifth floor which was the smoking floor and we are non-smokers. There was a representative of a shuttle service to the pier in the lobby but we opted out and instead booked our own taxi. Won't do that again. The shuttle cost $8 per person (Star Transit) and our taxi cost $10 but he was very late. We were still waiting for him when the last shuttle van left the hotel.

We boarded in Fort Lauderdale with ease. We were on the ship by 12:30 pm and settled in our room by 1:30. We brought on our own luggage so didn't have to wait for it to appear. We plan to walk on with our suitcases every time because of the convenience of not having to wait for it.

Day 1

Cabin Review


Great cabin, near the front, quiet hallway, away from main traffic areas, one floor down from Lido deck
