Sail Date: Apr 2016
Cabin: Interior Stateroom

I am celebrating my 60th birthday this year, 2016, and the cruise was the first leg of a trip around the world. The cruise added great value to my trip and sharing the interior room with a buddy, made it even more affordable.

We had a great time while at sea, for 8 days, and at all the ports. Gibraltar was probably the favorite as it had numerous English pubs.

I was disappointed in the cost of the internet being prohibitive...$40/day...are you kidding. Sure you could get it down to $20 if you spent $300 for the entire cruise on internet. I was also surprised that I had to spend over $70 on laundry. Those were two items that were negative, but the other items were fantastic.

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom

Cabin L

Our cabin was small but after a day or two of adjusting, we adapted. We knew it was going to be small, it was the cheapest one. The shower at first seemed tiny, but after a couple days, again, we got used to it. It actually worked quite well with good pressure and hot water every time. Our cabin steward, Francisco, was excellent, always greeting us every time we passed him. Twice a day he cleaned the room.

Port Reviews

We arrived in Ft. Lauderdale 2 days early and enjoyed the time greatly.
