Review summary

This was a much needed vacation/birthday cruise for my husband. Overall it was a very good experience working with the booking agency .

We had the faster to the fun pass which allowed us early access to our rooms and luggage as well as fast check-in.

Our cabin 8322 was spacious and had a decent size balcony.

The service in the MDR was lacking the first few nights but was addressed with moving us to a better section. The food on the ship was very good and we enjoyed the Guys Burger Joint as well as the specialty restaurant JiJi's Asian. 

The ports we visited were also very relaxing.

We had the perfect amount of floor space and storage in this cabin. Lucky we didn't bring more shoes because we would have struggled with storage. we also could have used an additional drawer but made it work. We had an extended balcony and our cabin steward Giordana was great. She supplied us with two buckets of ice twice daily. There are cabinets under the night stands as well. The bathroom could have used more storage space but it all worked out almost perfect. I would stay in this cabin again. Also a good tip is to bring your own hairdryer and power strip. The amount of plugs are lacking and the hairdryer is very weak.

Ship tip

Grab your food and head to the Havana Bar to eat. You can always find a seat there. the 24 hour pizza was great! I could eat that everyday.

No need to do an excursion here. The beach is free and you don't have to walk far. Chairs included.
