Great, older ship, needs new upgrades, but still very clean, easy accessability, and style.   Staff very friendly.  Enjoyed the adult area pool and hot tubs on aft deck.  Itinerary intensive, but because of late afternoon departures, not to exhausting.   Would have loved a sea day on the last day, but managed fine.   Book an excursion for San Juan on last day and they get your luggage to the airport for you.  Very helpful.
