Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin: Family Oceanview Picture Window

We initially chose this cruise as the lead in a back to back. The hurricanes in the fall changed the itinerary on us and it ends up being almost the same cruise twice. Not to much problem there as we had never been to the ABC islands before.

The sail away from NYC was OK but to tell the truth there are better ports to sail out of. The embarkation went smoothly for us, probably better than most as I have been forced to use a cane because of a bad knee.

Lets talk about the ports. The first was Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic about a hour away from Punta Cana. This is a new port and you are tendered in. The port itself has many exclusive resorts and upper end stores there. We did a tour that took us to many place, like a cigar making factory, a chocolate factory and many other sites. If you didn't do a tour from here there is little to do. The other thing was we were the first ship there and tour operators usually do things from Punta Cana. If more ships come the service will improve.
