This was our first cruise but now we are hooked. I had read mixed reviews before booking. I am happy that we didn't listen to all the negatives. The Lirica is a beautiful ship & the staff is very friendly. We had a few language barrier issues w/ staff but everything worked out fine. The 4 of us had the time of our lives! (2 adults & 2 teenage girls) It was a little tight in the cabin but very workable. Food was very good in the dining room, breakfast is much better there. The buffet has something for everyone. The grill had great burgers & grilled lambchops. Entertainment was well entertaining at least the few shows we saw. Excellent juggler!

Embarkation was very quick. Arrived at the port @ 12:30pm & we where in our room by 1:30pm. Had the rest of the day to enjoy the ship & start vacation.

San Juan is very beautiful. We walked around old town & just enjoyed the buildings & some shopping.Found some really good prices on jewelry. The San Juan Hard Rock Cafe is a must! We noticed alot of Police around the area & felt safe the entire time.
