Sail Date: Mar 2019
Cabin: Balcony Stateroom

We decided on this cruise as a sudden addition to our bucket list - Havana (Cuba), St Marteen, Antigua, Madera - all in one sweep.

Getting through Havana airport was an exceptional experience and one not to be glamorised in any way. We arrived at the ship quite late went through the obligatory photograph, not much in the way of a welcome, collected our cards then straight to our cabin and bed.

Next day in Havana was pretty good - we did our own thing, a morning and afternoon tour is separate old American cars for a lot less than the ship organised tour.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom

Cabin B2

The cabin was small and barely adequate, as a "Fantastica" it was very disappointing. A large comfortable bed, writing desk with just one easy chair.

The shower cubicle was tight with doors that did not seal.
