Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2017
Cabin: Signature Superior Verandah Suite

We chose this cruise because we love to end up at home, no travel day at the end. We had been on ship in January and you can view my rave review on this site. We loved the whole experience. It was an eye opener, all the changes in a couple of months and not is a happy way. The positives:

The staff, the service, the cabin attendants, the food, and the entertainment all wonderful. Professional, attentive, and appropriate to audience. After that you may think, what more is there on a cruise that's important - well fed and entertained by genuinely engaged people.

The issues:

Port Reviews


Actual docking Area is very nice but once beyond the fence it's Jamaica mon. A bit busy and not a particularly pretty port though some nice colonial buildings.

Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera)

We liked the walk around port, good wifi, cheap beer


No tour

Puerto Vallarta

Great port, wonderful malecon, $1 beers and margeuritas! Ole!


We went to corinto, Nicaragua but it's not on list. Took tour to Leon and it was fantastic!

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Good walk about. In on Sunday most things closed
