We chose this cruise mainly due to our time constraints and this was one that fit our schedule. We had a great time. Embarkation and disembarkation went very well. The ship was recently renovated and everything looked great. We traveled with our teen son. This is a small ship as are all the ships that can be accommodated in Havana. What it lacks in water slides and things for kids, it made up for in fun music shows, entertainment and nice staff. We enjoyed the food in Palace and Crossings for breakfast and lunch. We had a dinner at Cagney's which was included in our package and we enjoyed it as well. We did eat at the buffet for a breakfast and some lunches. I prefer Palace and Crossings over the buffet. Most family's with younger kids went to the buffet. We did a Panorama excursion in Havana in the evening through the cruise. It was a choice we made last minute and it still had openings. We did a stingray excursion in Stirrup cay and it was excellent. We also rented a snorkel, in addition to the 2 we brought from home (ours were better, dry snorkels and theirs had too large a mouthpiece for me but it fit my son) and snorkeled on our own at Stirrup Cay. We saw lots of fish. Early morning the waters were cool but later in the day it felt just right and we were not at all cold in the water. Our cabin was 9239 and it was near elevators but not too close to be annoying. It was very quiet and we had a nice view of Havana as we pulled into port. The cabin is small but it was large enough for the three of us. The only semi problem was that our son, about 5' 8" was a bit too tall for the pull out sofa bed. We had to put the sofa bolster at the foot to support his legs and feet. He seemed ok with it but someone older and even taller may have more difficulty with that. We would go again.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 9239
The cabin is small but it was large enough for the three of us. The only semi problem was that our son, about 5' 8" was a bit too tall for the pull out sofa bed. We had to put the sofa bolster at the foot to support his legs and feet. He seemed ok with it but someone older and even taller may have more difficulty with that. We enjoyed the view of Havana from our balcony and the view of the island from our balcony. The room was very clean and did look as though it was recently refurbished.
