Our review of LOS Jan 02 sailing, western Caribbean from Miami. This was our 3rd cruise, but the first with our sons and their girls. The girls are a current daughter-in-law and two future daughters-in law . All of the Kids were embarking on their first cruise. Our previous cruises were on the NCL Crown to Bermuda and in 2009 the Serenade of the Seas to Alaska.
Pre-cruise we flew with Air Canada and stayed at the Hampton Inn Blue Lagoon. This hotel suited our needs very well. The included breakfast was great and the weather warm enough to sit outside to eat it. Transportation to the port was with Florida Sunshine transportation in a van with a luggage trailer. The scheduled pick-up was 11am but they arrived about 30 mins late. This was not a problem as their representative was at the hotel aiding in the loading of a large bus for one of the NCL ships. She was able to inform us of the delay. We were not in any rush so the delay did not bother us at all. we recommend FST for transfers.
This cruise had a passenger list that represented 51 countries. There were a lot of foreign languages being spoken on board for the week. I met a couple of CC members although the M&M was to brief, many disappeared quickly and did not stay to say hello.
We had 3 insides and one balcony. One of the insides was noisey from near-by equipment. Cabin 2327 is to be avoided.
