Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda Suite

Beautiful ship with large cabins and plenty of public spaces to get away. Lots of restaurants, but food choices were somewhat limited. Like most cruises, there were minor issues along the way, but we really enjoyed this cruise.

Embarkation seemed a bit disjointed with multiple stops. Staggered times based on suite category meant no big lines and cabins immediately ready. Our boarding opened at 2:00 pm. Don’t get too comfortable unpacking and miss lunch as the hours are limited. Welcome champagne glass and a full bottle waiting for you in the suite. We toured and photographed the ship after lunch. Disembarkation went as scheduled with full room service breakfast available (a rarity on most lines). Out of the cabin by 8:30 am, we waited until 9:15 for our group to be called right on time. Uber for two to FLL was less than $12 + tip. Why would anybody spend more for a bus transfer?

Ship. So much room throughout the ship that we often asked ourselves, “Where is everybody?” Like many newer ships, this ship has the plethora of quiet places to “hide out.” Lots of elevators and stairs made it a snap to get around.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda Suite

Cabin DV

Deck 6, near the central stairs. Large cabin with walk-in closet. Good sized bathroom with bathtub that we never found time to use. Shower with swinging door was adequate. Dual shower heads were a nice touch. Full sized sofa converted to third berth. We could not have been in a better location. It was less than two decks up or down to get about anywhere on the ship we wanted to go. Spa was a 30 second walk down the hall.

Port Reviews

San Juan

Great dinner at Triana with a flamenco show the night before embarkation. It was a pleasant surprise. Highly recommend.

Cienfuegos

Botanical garden was amazing. Nice lunch at Melia.
