Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2016
Cabin: Junior Suite

We decided to get some sunshine & heat and to celebrate a birthday, Christmas & New Year all in one trip.

Our room was a JS on deck 9, serviced by Wayan, who did an excellent job. He knew we were early risers, so our room was normally done by the time we got back from breakfast in the Windjammer.

We are experienced Diamond Plus cruisers(500+ points), so feel we can give fairly accurate reviews. Constructive criticism is valid, but complaining for the sake of it is not. We had recently sailed on this ship on the Transatlantic crossing, so after that we were a bit concerned about cruising on her again. However, some things had improved, whilst other things well, deteriorated. The crew we met were wonderful, Roberto"Bobby"Orr, our previous SRA was so friendly and helpful, as was Greg Taylor & Luis, other SRA's on our floor. It soon became a daily routine to interact with all of them, including of course Wayan.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite

Cabin JS

Well serviced by I Wayan, but the toiletries provided are not as good as they once were...basic, but sufficed. Bed very comfortable, & the shower, over the bath, was powerful & hot. Balcony, with good chairs and footstools, was a good place to sit/lie & relax, away from the crowds on sea days.

Port Reviews

Miami

Know the area well, good for walking.

Antigua

St John's is not the nicest place away from the immediate port area, but felt safe.

Aruba

Good place to walk about

St. Kitts (Port Zante)

Good area to explore on foot.

Labadee

Seemed to have improved facilities from last time. Sun loungers fine...plenty of opportunities to lie in the shade if required.

San Juan

Walking about old town is easy, as is the walk around the sea promenade.
