Getting ready to bring in the New Year at Spice H20, outdoor AFT portion of the ship

This cruise was a last minute (2 weeks before sailing) due to my other line and selected ship changing. I was able to stay with the same itinerary which was important.

I’ll start with the few negatives.

The extra costs. The free options are not as vast as on other ships, but the Complimentary offerings are sufficient. Before the staff moves on anything your sea card will be handed over. They are good about telling you what cost extra before obliging which is great.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin was spacious for four - 2 teens, 2 adults. Balcony is tight and didn’t allow for a layout experience. Bathroom for this room type goes across span of bathroom. Bathtub shower/combo and very spacious. Storage seemed smaller than normal but we made it work. Provided sparkling wine for free and treats throughout the week. Beds were comfy.

Port Reviews

Aruba

Absolutely beautiful. Warm, clear waters, soft sand and lots of choices for letting your hair down. Very Clean, built for tourists.

Bonaire

Loved the natural beauty of the island. Great for snorkeling (even on the beach). You’re immersed in their culture, not a tourist build up

Something is not right when your arrive behind a big gate and the surrounding community looks dangerous. This was a clear example of wealth not being distributed throughout. Not sure I ever want to return. The natural beauty of the island is mesmerizing with a combo of mountains and ocean. We had to ride over an hour to get to somewhere to enjoy.

Curacao

Loved it!
