Review summary

We wanted to go to Puerto Rico, so this cruise was perfect for us! There was some hurricanes around the areas we went, but we were fortunate to only experience turbulent waves on our at Sea days, the islands were sunny and fun!!

Ship tip

When you get to the elevators, there is a ship telling you where you are and labelled with the areas on the boat. Use it every time!

we made it to our car in 25 minutes, the staff did a great job organizing a silent disembarktion! I recommend all passengers attend the disembarktion seminar on every boat!
