Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Interior with French Door (obstructed views)

We sailed on the 14 night repositioning cruise from Tampa to Baltimore with stops in Grand Cayman, Costa Rica, Panama, Aruba, Bonaire and St Maarten.

The ship with the new Funship 2.0 upgrades is well maintained with lots of new additions.

Embarkation in Tampa was easy once it started (there was a bit of delay and they didn’t allow us to drop off until after 11am). Debarkation in Baltimore was a long, drawn out process but I put that down to a long cruise and the first time back at that port in 7 months.

Cabin Review

Interior with French Door (obstructed views)

Cabin 4K

This cabin is wheelchair accessible and sleeps 2. It was a wide, automatic door that opens when you insert your card into the door reader; there is also a door opener on the inside of the cabin to make entering or exiting in a wheelchair very easy. The bathroom is large with a roll in shower (with a sturdy shower seat), a sink you can roll under and the toilet has grab bars on the left side and behind it. There are several grates in the shower area for the water to go down but beware that they do seem recessed into the floor about a half inch (so the wheels of the wheelchair got stuck a couple of times). There is also a slight lip coming in/out of the bathroom (it’s probably just that the door frame is a little out of alignment so it creates a bump), nothing major but it takes a bit of effort to roll over. The cabin also has the standard table and desk area along with a chair. There is less storage in this cabin than in a traditional cabin with one side of the cabinet for hanging (and the life jackets are stored at the bottom so it’s not quite as long) and one side of the cabin with shelves. There are only 3 small drawers (the top drawer has the hair dryer in it). The cabin is also close to the aft elevators which made it convenient for everything that was midship or aft (but it took a bit to get to the forward show theatre or the Butterflies lounge). For most wheelchair users, this cabin is very good. There are emergency pull cords in the bathroom and by the bed, and turn around space for a wheelchair or scooter.
