As the title suggest, this cruise was made for my wife and I. It was our 4th Caribbean cruise and by an amazing coincidence, all six ports of call would be new to us. It's not so easy finding a cruise with all new ...

The Diamond lounge fills to capacity by 4:15, prior to service at 4:30. The lounge seats about 34 guests and the Lounge attendant will absolutely not open the door to the adjoining Viking lounge. He watched Diamond ...
