Sail Date: Feb 2020

We chose this cruise because it departed from Barbados on February 16th and my birthday was the next day.

My husband and I normally cruise in November and March but this year because it was my 65th birthday we decided to sail earlier. With all the rumours of coronavirus we thought we would get a vacation before the pandemic set in, never really expecting anything so serious. Needless to say, we timed it well and I had one of the best birthdays ever.

Because we had cruised on Explorer 2 the previous November, many of the crew remembered us and it was like meeting up with old friends.

Cabin Review

Our cabin was more than adequate with lots of storage, including the shelving behind the mirror and the bed was very comfortable. The glass door in the shower made the whole ablution process much more enjoyable than having a shower curtain. Our cabin stewards were super efficient and although face cloths are not usually provided, I asked for them and they were provided.
