We chose this cruise to visit ports of call we'd not visited before. We had a good tour in Amber Cove, DR. We took a cable car ride up the mountain plus a city tour. We booked with Marysol Tours. Highly recommend. In San Juan we took the free city trolley and visited the two forts - Cristobal and El Morro. Excellent! We also enjoyed a fabulous meal of Mofongo, a Puerto Rican dish at Curva del Mal Restaurant in Old San Juan. Our dining experience aboard the ship was top notch. The food was wonderful and served piping hot. The waiters were the best. We loved that they entertained us during our dessert service. Our room Seward took excellent care of us as well. Our only negative was having to walk through the smokey casino to get from one side of the ship to another. The band played there at the casino so that excluded us from the fun. We are highly allergic to cigarette smoke. The singers and dancers were super! We only got three nights of them, could have used at least one more show. The commedian was good and so was the illusionist. There were plenty of activities on board to keep you busy. We also took in an outdoor movie. Better get there early to get the better seats. We got there late and had an obstructed view. The boarding process was not bad and we chose to see ourselves off the ship which really speeded things up. All in all it was a good cruise.
