Room Type: Oceanview

Cabin: 203

Waste of time and money, except for jetboat ride.
Shuttle provided only one way (ship to airport only).
Too many people coughing at end of trip.
Not enough food choices

(do not expect bbq ribs or roast turkey).
Not much to do except eat 6 times a day (7 hours a day),

good breakfast.
Tour bus excursions too short (had to get back to happy

hour and dinner).
Walking tours a joke (over priced).
Too rainy and foggy to see or take any pictures,

unless you like fish market or whale watching.
Be prepared to use the exercise equipment

to get rid of all those calories.
Live bands OK, but singers too loud and screechy.
Everything on cruise can be done at one-tenth the cost

by driving instead.
Over-priced shore excursions.

Toilet flushed only half the time. Too slow to refill.

over-priced, bus tours too short.


Good breakfast, but too much time eating and drinking. Over-priced shore excursions. bus tours too short. transportation to ship one way only (to airport). jetboat ride fun. Can do everything at one-tenth the cost by driving. Not worth it.
