We took a taxi from our hotel to the port, $30.00, a little expensive but our bags went right from the taxi to the porter. A tip for him and we were off. Lines were very short and we were onboard in no time. Due to the fact that the previous cruise was cancelled due to weather we were able to go direct to our cabin. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 and it was an awesome cabin. I was able to get everything put away and then we went to the Windjammer for some lunch. It was pretty chilly so we stayed in our jeans for sail away.
Our dinner that first night was in Chops and they didn't dissapoint! The steaks were wonderful and so were the desserts.
Our ports were Key West and Cozumel. We didn't take any excursions, just walked around the port. In Key West I bought sandals at Kinos and in Cozumel I bought jewerly.
We loved our cabin. this was our eighth cruise but our first balcony. I'm sure it won't be our last. It was very spacious with lots of storage. Not to happy with the shower curtain tho. No other ship we have been on has had a curtain on the shower, water got all over the floor and it was extremely small. That is just about the only negative for the entire trip. Our cabin steward was Natalia, she was super! We asked for ice and extra towels on the first night and she supplied us with them every night. This cabin was just slightly aft and very quiet. The view from the balcony was very good with no obstruction.
