Review Summary

Had we known our room would involve noise from above, we would have had second thoughts about booking this particular cabin. The booking agent had to have known. Now for the ringer - we were on our honeymoon. Say goodbye to repeat business from us - or others we know.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Pedro was our stateroom steward - outstanding service throughout the voyage.

Ship Tip

Avoid cabin R716 or the ones adjacent, unless you enjoy hearing foot traffic and chairs being moved around in the buffet above during the early morning and later evening. The noise above you will control when you go to sleep and when you wake up - no need for alarm clocks.

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

George Town, Grand Cayman Did not visit port

Staff stated unsafe to tender ashore. Many on board believe delay leaving Panama contributed to this - late arrival in Limon, Costa Rica.
