Had a really good time and met new friends. One odd our highlights was hanging out with Lee Your Cruise Director and members of the Fun Squad. Had the chance for more one on one interaction with them.

Food and Dining

The food was good, but at times the service was slow. I understand at times they were really busy, but this cruise seemed a little slower than what we experienced in the past.

Beautiful waters and enjoyed snorkeling. We also took a tour of the island hoping to see the flamingos, but they were too far away to enjoy. We had a wonderful time and look forward to going back.

Cartagena, Colombia

Visited the old city of Cartagena. Enjoyed the food and sights there, but there were a ton of street vendors heckling you. The aviary and little zip at the port was awesome. Loved seeing all the birds and a couple monkeys and sloths

Things were a little slow getting off the ship. While waiting to get off the ship, all the bathrooms on board were out of order for some reason.
