Great first cruise! Port Everglades is a very short distance from Ft Lauderdale airport which was nice. Everything went smoothly throughout the cruise with no major hick ups. All staff was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the trip. For its age compared to other ships it was in great condition and nicely decorated. Some rust spots but I don't think it was that bad given that the ship is constantly out on the water. The crew was also seen painting and varnishing on certain days while at sea which seemed a little strange and could have been done while in port. Port visits were great and disembarking was well organized, however the time spent on shore was very short in my opinion. Specially in larger cities such as Cartagena and Panama City. The onboard entertainment in the evening was top notch in my opinion. There was great variety of shows from night to night. Would definitely go again in hear beat!

Cabin Review

Premium Balcony
Cabin B1 C402
Room was a great size and the balcony was great. Not as much privacy as we would have liked since the balcony above was looking down on to us.
