Pina Colada in my private cabana at Perfect Day

My sister and I had both never been on a cruise and decided we would try one together since noone else in either of our families want to go. We had a great price and I got some on board credit with my purchase so I was happy.

We embarked in about 20 minutes. No issues at all. I was nervous what to expect and other than the fact that the security people from the port were a little rude (think TSA) it was fine.

The ship was beautiful. We were an ocean balcony. Plenty of room for two women. Deck was great! Lots of storage. Did wish there was an outlet next to the bed somewhere. The only size issue was the bathroom but I knew it was going to be small and I think that's what you get with most cruise lines.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Loved our cabin. It was close to elevators but not noisy. No obstructed view. Great layout.

Port Reviews

Perfect Day at CocoCay

I loved the cabana. It was just ruined by the noisy family next to us.

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

I stayed in Cocoa Beach at the Hilton Cocoa Beach which I highly recommend. The port itself was fine. We got a transfer from the hotel and it was about 15 minutes to get there. Then about 20 minutes to get on board the ship.
