Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Club Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

There was a little confusion upon boarding, the information we were sent boarding did not begin until 4:00 but when we arrived the ship was almost completely boarded. As the ship was full reservations at the premium restaurants were only available late at night. The ship was very clean and there was no evidence of any problems with the plumbing.

The food in Prime C and Aqualina is excellent and the service is as good as it gets. The buffet is ok but we are not much for buffets. You have to watch room service on port days, if you want breakfast make sure to order the night before as they have cutoffs in some ports and the buffet close early some days.

Great time in the ports of call, we especially had fun in Limon. We generally skip the ship booked excursions and in Limon we found a cab driver his name was Vincent MacKenzie, he took us on a 3 hour adventure for $50.00 and when we got back to the ship we heard others grumbling about the lack of wildlife and sights. Vincent took us to a beautiful local beach with great food and made a stop at a friends where we were able to hold a sloth. The whole day was tons of fun.

Cabin Review

Club Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

Our cabin was very nice, at the rear of ship nice big balcony. We were on deck eight which is a little noisey as it is under the restaurant, next time deck seven.

Port Reviews

Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera)

This port is kind of in the middle of nowhere with virtually no facilities. If you were coming in early stay in Jaco it is about 45 minutes away but there is lots to see and do.

New Orleans

FUN, FUN, FUN. There was a food festival in the French quarter when we arrived it was excellent and the market is really cool. Not to busy when we were there really enjoyed our stay.
