This was an excellent cruise with many positives and very few negatives. It was in high demand and overbooked. We were astonished to hear the offers some people received to cancel and rebook a future cruise.
We had a concierge level stateroom and although it was small, it was very clean and comfortable with a balcony. The housekeeping staff is a very hard-working group of people and they made sure we always had what we needed. The condition of the ship is excellent although we did notice a couple of spots that needed a little repair.
The entertainment greatly exceeded our expectations. Last time we were on the Regatta in 2008 there wasn't much in the way of entertainment after dinner. There was the orchestra and one cabaret-style singer as I recall. Now there is still the talented orchestra in addition to a very entertaining and talented young group of 6 singers and dancers. They played to standing-room-only crowds. On their off-nights there was other entertainment. Gran Volta are 2 young Russian women who gave energizing and modern violin and cello performances. Very entertaining. The piano player, Stephen Kane, was also excellent.
Clean and comfortable. Bathroom is quite small but it was adequate.
Leisurely afternoon in Miami on our own.
Our first time in Key West. Walked around town on our own and toured the light house.
Good view of the city from the top of the monastery.
90 minute drive to Colonial village of Antigua. Very pleasant and cool because of the elevation. The jade museum is very interesting.
Did not spend time in San Francisco after the cruise.
