Cabin Review

We got a Veranda Suite, expecting that we’d spend a larger than average amount of time in our room (we rarely drink and hanging out in the bar area didn’t sound fun).

The sites were amazing from the top floor and the entertainment was actually great except for the lounge singer who left something to be desired.

Port Reviews
