Cabin Review

The biggest plus – an oversized balcony (nearly twice as deep as “normal” cat 2a rooms). Nicely furnished if a bit cramped but, for the Millennium class ships, this is normal. Could hear the occasional ding of the elevator but it was not intrusive. The hallways could be noisy but that had little to do with the ship – that’s passengers moving to and fro. Cabin is adjacent to concierge class and that got us a concierge class cabin attendant – a huge plus in the extra car he provided.

Port Reviews

Cartagena (Colombia)

The Fortress, Dungeon, Inquisition Palace tour was pretty decent, even on a very hot and muggy day. A word of caution – to climb to the top of the Fortress takes a while. It’s a steep climb. Our guide was knowledgeable and clearly understandable. The old dungeon is now a marketplace so this was really not much more than a shopping stop. We did, however, enjoy a nice walk along the cobblestoned streets on the way to the Inquisition Palace. This space got very crowded with 3-4 tour busloads of folks vying for space and a view. Still, recommended for some good history of old Cartagena.
