The dates and the itinerary fit our calendar and we were ready to enjoy returning to cruising. The ship was at about 60% capacity, so it was not crowded. Of course, being in the Haven crowding is never an issue. Checking in with verification of vaccination status plus COVID testing took extra time, but it was well organized.
After priority boarding, we went to the Haven Restaurant for a relaxing meal and some adult beverages. Our suite was ready for us pretty quickly. This was our first time in an aft-facing penthouse with large balcony, but it will not be the last! It is a great balcony, actually more like a deck, with plenty of room, two recliner lounge chairs and a table with four chairs. The view over the wake, out of the wind was great.
The Haven complex was all the way forward, but it was good to get some exercise walking along the running track. The Horizon Lounge and Haven sundeck were excellent spaces to relax and enjoy the views.
The suite was roomy and well appointed. As I mentioned before, the balcony was a high point. It was very convenient having a second bathroom.
Beautiful harbor with interesting cities.
Clean and interesting city, not too crowded.
