This is the second time that we are on this ship. We also cruised for New Year's last year and booked this cruise while we were on the ship.
I have to say last year was better. The ship is getting ready to go in for dry dock for a major renovation.
We live in Miami so we used Lyft to go to the port. We got there at 11:30 am. Embarkation was quick - we are Emerald and the line was very small. Our room would be ready at 1:30 so we went to the buffet to have lunch and wait for our cabin.
We had an interior cabin - 9643 - it was confortable - had lots of storage space and drawers. Our cabin steward was excellent, We cleaned our room twice a day, brought us ice and was attentive to all our needs.
We took a cab to go to Baha Mar. It was $20 to go and $18 to return.
Beautiful resort and great Casino
We got off the ship and spent the day at the beach and enjoyed the ships BBQ
