Sail Date: Feb 2013
Cabin: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

This was a very relaxing cruise for us. Took a taxi to port at 10:30am and spent over 1/2 hr. stalled in traffic waiting in the terminal to be dropped off. Not fun. They could work on that. Once inside, it went fast, as we are Gold members. No champagne welcome that we have been used to. It was cold so we just went to eat and get aquainted with the ship layout. Our luggage didn't get to our room until after 4, which is much longer than any of our other cruises.

Our balcony room was very nice. LOVED LOVED LOVED the quality bedding! Like the rounded shower door as opposed to a shower curtain. Very clean room. Plenty of storage. Asked our room steward to have 4 towels each day and a bucket of ice. TV was old, and they were still showing a film telling about the largest ship, Freedom of the Seas, which is OLD (2006) news! Definitely not the largest ship now! The ship looked very good, and was sparkling, except for the carpet in the hallways.

We had my time dining and ate at Chops the first night. Delicious! I had the filet mignon and it was amazing! The other nights, we were usually seated between 6 and 7. We carried on 2 bottles of wine and a corkscrew, so we took glasses of wine from our room to dinner. You can't take the bottle without paying extra.

Cabin Review

Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D2

We liked our room. LOVED LOVED LOVED the bedding! The tv was old as well as the programming. Very clean. Liked the curved shower door instead of a curtain. Love the shower head and pressure! Balcony was nice and private. Refrigerator was not cold enough. Plenty of storage space. We like the back part of the ship and loved being on deck 9!

Port Reviews


We don't really like to do tours, and in doing lots of reading of this port, found that it isn't the best to go out on your own. We walked around the port and then got back on the ship. Not worth the stop for us.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

We love to snorkle, so after doing research, found a place right outside of the port. Had to tender in, got off and went right out of the port, walked past the first snorkle spot we saw to Eden Rock Dive Shop. We had our snorkle and mask and rented fins for $5 each. They have a rest room, tables, some lawn chairs and a great place to get in and snorkle. They are very helpful in telling you where to snorkle. BEAUTIFUL fish, BEAUTIFUL clear, blue water! Amazing! Just wish we could have been there longer, but we had to be back on the ship by 3:30. With tendering, we had to be out of the water by 2pm. Would have loved to stay longer!


We walked off the ship with our snorkle and mask planning on just taking a taxi to a beach. The first person we saw, Dive with Martin convinced us to take snorkle tour (for a reduced price) and we were so glad we did! We were snorkeling with lots of beautiful fish! Again, absolutely gorgeous water! He dropped our group off at a beach called Money Bar Beach Club. Lovely! Restrooms, a restaurant, a beach, shower, a really nice place! We walked 1/2 hour back to the ship. Didn't have to be on until 5, so we enjoyed the day.
