This is a lovely ship, probably the largest we have sailed on in our 30 plus years of cruising. We always go in the spring time and the spring breakers have never bothered us, until this year. And it wasn't the college students you associate with spring break, it was the younger children that are left to their own on the ships and do what any group of kids will do, get into everything. I blame this on their parents.
Our embarkation was smooth, we were in the first check in group and being a priority we were on the ship and eating lunch by 11:30. We were in one of the cove balcony rooms for the first time, I loved being so close to the water and you learn to live with the wet floor and the dry salt remaining when the wet dried. I will say they are very private.
We had already been to all the stops on this cruise so only booked a tour in La Romana, a visit to a Indian cave which was amazing and huge. There were a lot of stairs but once you get to the bottom they have an elevator to go back up. Grand Turk has the most beautiful waters, Curacao has it's lovely colorful buildings and Aruba is like Arizona with an ocean.
Plenty of room, balcony gets pretty wet from spray, I mean puddles, then it dries and you have salt piles. But being close to water was great.
