Cabin / Stateroom

We stay in the family harbour and it was great to not have to go to the main dining for breakfast. And habe snacks and drinks at night right down the hall.

Ship tip

If you have an early flight from Miami, DO NOT set your bags out the night before if you can help it. When collecting your bags at baggage claim it takes for ever. It took us 2 1/2 hours to get our bags.
