I had wanted to go to Aruba for years and this cruise - booked the Costco travel - was a great value. we received 10 nights for about what we would've spent for 4-5 days in Aruba without the entertainment, and 5 additional ports to visit. another advantage of going in dec., and maybe 10 days, is there were very few children on the cruise. Also, it was nice seeing the ports and the ship decorated for Christmas! Our room was very nice, comfortable, and larger than we had expected. We rested more on this cruise than we have in years! They have a list of about 1,000 DVD movies that they will deliver/pick-up from your room. Happy Hour with reduced drink prices were offered daily at all bars. Curacuo was our favorite stop & should not be missed!!!

Best Cruise Yet!!

Cabin Review

Large Interior Stateroom
Cabin I 7135
We never had an inerior cabin before, but we had no complaints and slept better/later since it was darker. when we wanted to see outside, we just turned on the TV to the camera of either the from or rear of ship. For the $, this was by far the best cruise we have taken and look forward to another next year. 10-days allows you more time to wind down/relax too!
