Onboard Activities

We stayed in a Havana Suite so the aft pool deck was reserved for all Havana guests. Not crowded, beautiful pools and hot tubs, great bar.

Cloud 9 Spa

The spa was beautiful as always. Love the different therapy rooms and the hot tub was uncrowded and very nice.

Super beautiful cabin, large bathroom with a two person walk in shower with bench and rain shower. Room had separate living room and private porch with lounge chairs, and a swing.

Ship tip

If your sailing on board a vista class ship sail in one of the Havana rooms with the private patio's on deck 5

Ports of call

New York, New York Did not visit port

Live in NJ, go to NY all the time.

Grand Turk Island Did not visit port

Ship missed this stop because we had to double back to the US coast to airlift a passenger off the ship for a medical condition. Received 20% off of next cruise. Probably shouldn't have said that, I see another review from somebody on the same cruise that didn't get anything for the missed port.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Been there many times. Always something to do there.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
Rented a private cabana poolside with two other couples. Had a blast.
