Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Interior Stateroom

Embarked Miami - we spent 2 nights there, one them a full day and night to explore - that was good and I enjoyed Miami for the day / evening and I think this was maybe enough time too. We stayed in the Hotel of South Beach and the food there was good. Overall, very nice. Embarkation was pretty easy and I don't recall any issues at all.

I was a little concerned as I’d read a fair number of bad reviews. To some extent I needn’t have worried, but it did also have some negatives as well. So, for those that might be interested I thought I’d just share my own personal opinion.

Pros: for me, was that regardless of the size of the ship, the areas I was most interested in (eg the bars / public areas etc) was mainly the same as on a bigger ship, albeit less of them and less busy. There are nice sitting and quiet areas. The waiters and service staff are superb.

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom

Basic, simple and my first time on an inside cabin and it was all a bit too enclosed and cave-like for my liking.

Port Reviews

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

This day was nothing special but overall I think Cayman is a beautiful place that most people would love to visit.

Costa Maya

Loved this port - it was fun.

Key West

Like this place and would have loved to have a proper look around the place. Would consider going again.


I enjoyed Miami and think spending a day there is a great idea on a cruise.
