We recently went on a repositioning cruise from Vancouver to Fort Lauderdale with stops in Victoria, San Francisco, Cabo San Lucas, San del Sur, Puntarenas, Panama, Cartagena and Grand Cayman. The leg between San Francisco and Cabo San Lucas felt very long with the three sea days. We were late getting to our excursion in Cabo due to bad weather, so were unable to see much of the port itself. Overall, the service onboard was good, met some great bar staff that went over and above, along with our room steward. Passenger services were unhelpful and a little arrogant (one in particular) telling us different information than their counterpart. One of the head waiter in the MDR was amazing, although the rest of the staff not so much. The further south we went, the ship took on a strange smell in the elevators, possibly due to the humidity, but it was pretty foul. The Captain and his crew were awesome, polite and friendly.

Great Repositioning Cruise

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BD B704
Cabin was a standard cabin with balcony - no real rave here!
With the installation of the soap and shampoo dispenser in the shower, it reduces the amount of room you have, I feel they need to readdress this.
