Sail Date: Apr 2013
Cabin: Junior Suite

We left out of Galveston,not too bad getting on board once we got through the line for security. We were in a JS so got to move to front of line to receive sea pass. Got on board and found our cabins. Met our stateroom attendant immediately. Willy was very helpful and answered all our questions. He was always available and attentive to our needs.

Ate all evening meals in the MDR. Our waiter Christian and his assistant Ernesto were very good. Always willing to make adjustments to the meals if needed and even got us a couple of extra lobster tails and shrimps. They were both polite and attentive. We really enjoyed them and their service.

Also enjoyed dining in the WJ although sometimes it was pretty crowded and you had to maneuver around. The food selection throughout the ship was excellent.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite

Cabin JS

Excellent cabin, glad we upgraded to the JS. Cabin steward was the best or for our first cruise set the bar very high. Quiet didn't hear anyone and we had adjoining rooms. Loved the balcony and being able to go out and sit on it just watching the water.

Did the whitewater rafting trip down the Rio Bueno river. Great time!! The guides were great and very entertaining. Highly recommend.
