Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah 1A

I wasn't going to bother to write a gushing review for our first ever cruise, figuring it had already been done. But after reading several negative reviews about a DIFFERENT cruise line, I realized the importance of positive reviews.

The night before our cruise we stayed at the Hyatt Regency Miami Convention Center ($232 for the night), which is a short cab ride to the cruise port. It was a very nice room, with a view of one of the city's drawbridges, which was cool to watch in operation. We ate a late lunch at a fantastic little Peruvian ceviche diner called C3VICH3Town ($69 for two with 4 beers). It was recommended by the hotel concierge, and she nailed it; what a perfect intro to Miami's Peruvian cuisine.

Embarkation was a breeze. It took maybe 30 minutes from the time we got out of our taxi to walking onto the ship.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View with Verandah 1A

Cabin 1A

Perfect in every way. Our cabin was a 1A balcony on the hump. I was impressed by the bathroom! It was so contemporary and tidy. We do a lot of camping in a pop-up camper, so we are very used to close quarters and the importance of good design. Also, my husband is an architect. Suffice it to say that we had virtually no complaints about the size of the room, its design, cleanliness, or anything, really. Just perfect. The ONLY caveat I would mention is that the extra 6 feet or so of space that a 1A balcony on the hump gets you is not really that big of a deal. We booked a 1B balcony for our next cruise. That's all.
