We have never been to the Caribbean and decided a cruise would be a great way to have an introduction to this part of the world. Since we were pleased cruisers on the Coral Princess to Alaska we decided to stick with the Princess cruise line. We were not disappointed.

We live on the West Coast and found a flight to Fort Lauderdale from San Francisco on Virgin America. It was a comfortable flight with plenty of legroom, plenty of entertainment via the seatback screen that also served as the ordering device for food and drink after the initial beverage service.

Our hotel prior to the cruise was the Springhill Suites in Dania Beach. The hotel was sold out because of the number of ships in port (4). The hotel staff was helpful in finding a place for dinner, a Cuban restaurant within walking distance, and suggesting BJs discount member warehouse across the street for wine. BJs will allow you to purchase wine at their membership desk without buying a membership.

Loved balcony. Convenient to have refrigerator and fruit if we wanted it. Liked the convenience of having light switches at the entry and also by the bed to control the lights. Bathroom small but adequate. Plenty of storage space, hangers, cupboards, and drawers. We didn't fill all the space.
