Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

We found this a great, reasonably priced way to see the Caribbean. In order to see the islands you need to get away from the ports as they are simply full of shops that appear to be the same in each port. Each island has it's own unique beauty that is pretty easy to get to either with a P&O tour or by yourself. We did a number of P&O tours and found them all to be extremely good.

We travelled as a group of 8 people. 4 of the group had not cruised before. Some issues that were rather disappointing - a couple of wines that our group particularly enjoyed had run out by end of the first week. As we had purchased a wine package prior to the cruise we were limited to the standard package wine list. There were no other wines that we liked so we had to get a refund on our wine package. Second week drank very little wine with dinner as there wasn't anything that we really liked.

All the staff on board were very friendly and helpful and they all work extremely hard.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin JB

This is a great cabin. Centrally located for all parts of the ship. It is also very quiet and you don't hear any engine/docking noises. The balconies are larger on C deck and have a small amount of private space that is not overlooked from above.

Port Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Disappointed with this tour. It did not match up to the description given in the brochure. It stated 1 1/2 hour walking tour - we got 10 minutes (self guided) in a church and a brief chat standing outside in the square. We were then lead to a small local artisan market for about 15 minutes which was not mentioned in brochure. The driver was entertaining and knowledgeable.
