Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Junior Suite

We are a retired couple who enjoy cruising, so decided to cross the Atlantic to Florida, via the Caribbean, to enjoy some sunshine & heat.

Embarking was straightforward, although there seemed to a be lot of people who apparently don't realise that the crew have a hard job getting the ship ready for pax. We actually saw from our hotel room, people arriving, expecting to board the ship at 09.15 !

The ship was very clean & well maintained. The additions will obviously appeal to families, but it was easy to avoid the top area.

Junior Suite

Cabin J3

Excellent JS. Well maintained, & enjoyed the sun loungers on the balcony, especially when the deck area was windy.
