We had a wonderful time on this cruise.  We had never been to any of these ports which we enjoyed all of them!

We chose an aft balcony cabin (8461) because it was the middle of the back.  We were a little disappointed with the set up of the room.  The closet jutted out which made no space to hardly open the bathroom door.  We saw the room two doors down and it was larger than ours, had a larger balcony and way more space.  We also found it noisy with having seating one floor above as there always seemed to be chairs scraping!

The food was good except we found some of the times inconvenient.  We came back on to the ship in the early afternoon and wanted a  light lunch (Fruit/salad) but there was no place open to get this.  We felt that one of the buffets should have been open.  Also there was nothing other than pizza and ice cream available after 9:30.  It would have been nice to have something other than that available.

We did not use the Casino (which we would have liked to) but smoking was allowed in it and to even walk through was disgusting.  They had photos and entertainment but even walking through was gross for non smokers. 

We had no issues with embarkation and we did the walk off debarkation which we were glad because others waited for hours to get off.

Ship Tip

We heard about the Chefs Table when we were going to the ship from other passengers. We loved this and would recommend it to anyone. It was definitely worth the cost.

We took the Discover Curacao tour but found we did idn't have enough shopping time after the tour as the stores all closed before 6. We had to back to the mall by the ship dock in order to find anything open.

Did the Kuku Kanuko bus island tour then spent time at the beach. Beach time was a little too long for us but it was fun
