Sail Date: Nov 2021

We chose this cruise because we couldn’t wait to return to one of our beloved pastimes. Our last cruise was February 2020 right before the shutdown. We were thrilled to be living the cruise life once again - albeit shorter duration than we would have preferred.

We flew into Fort Lauderdale 2 days prior to the cruise early in the morning. Ubered from FLL to Lago Mar Resort for around 25$. We really enjoyed the resort. A bit outdated in style, but very clean everywhere, excellent friendly staff, and gorgeous grounds directly on the beach. A kitchenette and sitting area in our room , and balcony overlooking the pool and surrounded with lush foliage. We Instacart ordered a few groceries and beverages and filled in with delicious resort meals. One of our favorite things to do was walk down to the end of our beach and watch the cruise ships sail in and out of port. We would highly recommend this precruise stay. The only stressful thing we experienced was taking our Ctests that we brought with us.. The E- testing process glitched a bit and was nerve wracking waiting for results, but we thankfully tested negative .

We set up a shuttle for the morning of the cruise to transport us to Miami. It was 15$ pp . They picked us up at our resort, then picked up two more couples from downtown Fort Lauderdale and got us to the port when promised. Would not hesitate to use them again. Goshuttle was the name.

Cabin Review

Beautiful updated cabin. Location Location on Deck 10 mid. Took the stairs almost everywhere.
