Review summary

We enjoyed ourselves on this cruise. Our ship was rerouted because of a storm but we made the best of it. We returned to ports of San Juan and St. Maarten, which we had visited in April. This time we did things we hadn't done at these ports and really enjoyed these experiences. (Lemonade out of lemons)

loved Amor Cuba, (really not sure of name) but that was good because I am bilingual and it was bilingual so I related to it I think.

Ship tip

Just be prepared for lunchtime madness on Lido deck. I figured out when it would be less crowded and then it was okay.
