Havana.

We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience more of Havana - and we got two full days in the amazing city of Havana! The ship is in port right in Old Havana so it was super easy to get to town and back to the ship. To make things even better we spent New Year's Eve on the ship and enjoyed an excellent dinner and on deck party complete with Cuban dancers, champagne and midnight buffet under the stars.

I can't say enough about how incredible the entire cruise experience was for us. The service we received was excellent across the board, from waiters, to housekeeping, to bar staff, to activities and excursions and more. We found the dining to be top notch in both the buffet and the dining room. Many food selections are available to meet all palates and tons of fresh salads, vegetables and fruit which you don't always see. In particular the buffet was one of the best we have encountered.

Our experience in the dining room was 10/10. Our waiter, Permana, looked after our every wish as if he were a family member. There was nothing this guy wouldn't do to please us. And always smiling. The quality of the food, and the variety on the menu (that changes every night, I might add) was just excellent. We left dinner every night completely satisfied and happy.

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom

Cabin I2

A very nice interior state room, with an extremely comfortable queen bed and a pull down bunk bed for our son (he loved it). Nice little mini bar, many cupboards and cubby holes to store materials. An excellent safe behind the miser to store valuables. Nice bathroom with a cosy but fully satisfactory shower. A great room.
