Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Family Balcony

I picked this cruise up at a good solo traveler price when I was looking for a relaxing vacation. As it was a repo cruise, it had some sea days which I wanted to see how I liked and was my first cruise over 7 days in many years.

I booked a guaranteed balcony which was deck 8 forward. A good location for me. I spent a lotmof time in the cabin so the extra sofa and loads of daylight was just what I wanted. The cabin is forward of the elevators, so hall was quiet and only used by those sleeping in the area.

Embarkation and disembarkation were fine and went smoothly. I stayed onas long as I couldasmy flight was mid afternoon and aswewere docked at Pan Americana (not downtown), there was no point going anywhere but the airport.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony

Cabin B3

This was a nicely positioned cabin for quiet... close to an elevator, stairs and only one deck up from the theatre. It was very comfortable and well appointed. It has a restricted view balcony which at first I thought was quite limiting, but as weather was inclement, the metal framing meant more protection from the rain. It also restricted some of the ship lights making star gazing possible. Bathroom was a reasonable size with adequate shelf space. I really liked the shower size with sliding glass door, but the sliding door for the toilet area just restricted the space. Instant hot water was a nice surprise and the supplied products, though scented, were actually kind to sensitive skin proned to rashes.
