Cabin: Spa Balcony

We had been looking forward to this cruise for sooooo long. It was the first one for my husband and the second one for me (although mine was 20 years ago on the no longer existing Big Red Boat). Unfortunately, was not a very good experience for either one of us and will definitely not go back on this one.


*Embarkation was a nightmare! The parking and the walking just to get to the building to check-in should have been our first red flag

Loved our Spa Balcony cabin. Our room steward, Jimi was awesome!

Port Reviews


We just walked around the shopping district. However, we found out from another passenger that there was a tour bus for $30 each that took you to many sites on the island, including some lesser known shopping spots with really good deals.
