Sail Date: Apr 2022

Our cruise was originally booked for 2020 Leaving from Miami to San Miguel, Lisbon and 3 stops in Spain and then flying home to Boston. Because of the pandemic this did not take place. We were told in November 2021 that we had to choose a cruise by December 2021 or loose trip and money. We decided to go out of New York harbor into Caribbean with stop in Dominica Republic, St Thomas, St Maarten with final stop Turks and Caicos.

It took 4 - 4 1/2 hour from the time we entered the terminal in New York until we got through 4 security points and final got our keys to board.

Children were allowed to run all over the ship banging on doors at all hours of the day and nights and leave food and drinks wherever. We never got into pools or hot tops because entire families occupied them. We dined at a specialty dinner on Hibachi grill. No one in our group felt it was worth the $49.00 each.

Cabin Review

Cabin person was extremely great and our room kept nicely.
