We had a delayed departure due to an unfortunate death on the prior cruise which delayed the ship's return to port.  We got out very late that night.  Notifications were sent by email which were very helpful.  However, since we were already almost there, it still was a major problem.  We lost a port stop due to this.  The $25 credit per person did not seem appropriate to cover.

Otherwise, the cruise was a good value with enjoyable ports of call.  Smoke smell was a problem at times---will be nice when there is no smoking on the ship.
