We are a well seasoned cruising couple of ages 78 & 81. We have sailed 26+ cruises on MSC and many others on other cruise lines. We sailed the first time on Meraviglia Dec. 5 & 12, 2019 for a back2back in the Yacht Club. We had cabin 16018 for both weeks.. Very spacious cabin and great location. Outstanding service from our butler and jr. butler.
This time , Jan. 26, & Feb. 2, 2020, we were in cabin 16020 for the first week and 14007 the second week. Again, outstanding butlers and jr's. Were concerned about being on Deck 14 since it's a ways away from the rest of the YC areas. No problem. Such a quiet location. The cabins are very spacious with the only concern of the closet and bathroom layout. All the doors open into a small area so moving around the closets can be a little tricky. But we made it work for us, so all was ok.
Embarkation was very smooth. Escorted from the YC white tent, through security, up the escalator to the private YC terminal lounge. Plenty of beverages and snacks were available while we waited on check in and boarding. Disembarkation was equally smooth as our butler escorted us to the front of the lines at security and then we gathered our luggage and presented ourselves to customs. Off and in our car within 20 minutes.
Cabin is very spacious. The only con was the layout of the entrance to the bathroom and closets. All doors open into a very small area so can be difficult for maneuvering around at times. But we made it work!! 16020 is very convenient to the concierge area and the rest of the YC areas. 14007 was a very quiet location and wouldn't hesitate to book there again.
Ocean Cay is a little slice of paradise. Being in the YC provided a very relaxed and pampered experience on the Island. I do think there should be more education for the passengers visiting the island regarding not removing anything from the island, such as the shells found on the beaches.
