Sail Date: Nov 2015
Cabin: Ocean View

Transportation from FLL to Port Everglades was a cinch. There was a line to wait for taxis, but there were plenty of shuttles available too. Our cost was $10/each for a shuttle - the driver was walking down the line of passengers asking if anyone would like a shuttle instead. So, $20 plus a $5 tip to handle our luggage, wasn't so bad. On the return, we grabbed a cab that cost a total of $19, including the tip.

Embarkation - oh what a mess. Our plane landed at 1 p.m., so I figured we would miss a lot of the crowds by embarking after 2 p.m. No such luck. It was an hour in one line to check our documents and then 30 minutes in the next line to check in and get our sign and sail cards.

Our cabin was ready, so we immediately unloaded our carryons there. Muster was scheduled for 3:30, on floor #4. We walked up to #4 around 3:15 and grabbed some chairs in a lounge. For whatever reason, Muster started sometime after 4p.m. This was our easiest Muster ever. They pretended to do a head count and we were released. We left the port about 2 hours late.

Cabin 6B

Roomy, with plenty of storage. Our cabin was able to maintain a nice cool temperature. Passengers on level 8 and up complained that it was unbearably hot in their rooms.

Aruba

Very nice, good tour guide. Best of Aruba.

Playa del Carmen (Calica)

We enjoyed this trip very much, our favorite Island (next to Puerto Rico!). We had very little interaction with the birds, but that's okay, they don't need people poking at them all day every day. We rode around the farm in an open air vehicle and watched the animals interacting with each other.
