We chose this cruise because of the ten day cruise to the ABC Islands. Always wanted to book this cruise since it was offered on the Sun Viking , many, may years ago. With kids and college expenses we finally got the chance this year. We boarded the ship and went to the Windjammer found a table immediately enjoyed a great lunch with lots of variety. Cabins were ready early and luggage was brought up at that time too. But we had to go searching for it in the hall. We had an aft cabin number 1104 this cabin has an extended balcony on deck eleven. Wake view and we love these cabins. They are spacious and have a great balcony with two loungers , two chairs and a table. CONS...These balconies are located below the windjammer outside deck. One night when we were enjoying start gazing, dirt water came splashing down on us. I yelled up to the staff, but they just kept sending the water down. After that evening we did not go out on the deck at night anymore. Book on deck 10 o 9 If you do not want this experience. PROS to this cabin ..Beautiful views of ports as you pull in and out. The service and food in the main dining room was good. Head waiter , Francisco, Waiter Sandip and Imade worked very hard to make sure we had the best dining experience. This is the first time I remember being able to find a clean table in the Windjammer during breakfast and Lunch. The staff worked very hard to clean tables and even walk around to ask if you needed a drink. Very nice touch! What we did not like , was the solicitation for the speciality restaurants during breakfast and lunch. Everyday we were approached before we entered the Windjammer and again during our meal. This is annoying and a turn off. Entertainment. We missed the first half of the comedian that was on board the first night. Sorry did not get his name. But he was very funny. Jimmy Hopper was great. Terrific voice and acknowledgement to veterans first responders and MOMs! Hope to see Him on my New England cruise this FALL. Getting off the ship was very smooth. Miami has modern facility with carousel for luggage. Big improvement , then trying to find you luggage from a sea of look a like bags.

Wonderful way to see the ABC Islands
