Got a super deal so we decided to extend our previous cruise. What a delightful experience. We were escorted off the ship and walked through customs, booking and processing. After visiting the VIP lounge for complimentary coffee, juice and pastries and re-boarding the ship we were offered complimentary drinks at the Atrium Bar until our room was ready. The Cruise Director, Captain and Guest Services Director all greeted us and welcomed us back on board. Several other staff recognized us as well and again treated us as family. We received a complimentary "We Love Our Back to Back Cruisers" photo and a very nice basket of fruit, nuts, dried fruits and sweets.

  We really were treated like royalty!  (Hope you have the opportunity to  try a back to back experience sometime.

Take the free shuttle from just outside the shopping area off the dock.
