We never had been on a Christmas cruise before and had never travelled to the Southern Caribbean; therefore, Curaçao, Bonaire, and Aruba and Labadee, Haiti were intriguing choices. We live in Miami, so it was an easy journey to and from the terminal.
Our interior room with a virtual balcony was fine! We could see the ports of call and the ocean. It was a nice touch! Were were on Deck 9 mid-ship and port side which was quiet and centrally located. The cabin’s vanity and storage areas were large, plus we had a safe and a small refrigerator and a flat screen tv which pulled out of the wall. The bathroom was small and clean and the shower had plenty of hot water. The shower stall has circular, rotating doors instead of a yucky shower curtain that sticks to your backside! The bed was reasonably comfortable, plus the AC control worked well.
Cuddy, the Cruise Director was perfect for the job! He was approachable and enthusiastic! We were singing Christmas Carols on the Royal Promenade on Christmas Eve. They even handed out cookies and songbooks while we sang with the professionals. It was a joyful experience!
