Review summary

The ports were great. I enjoyed everything about the cruise except for the size of my room. It was too small for 3 people. In my past experience I had a room to myself. I had no idea that I would have the same size room for 3 people or I would have upgraded. It was very tight and there wasn’t enough room for all of us to unpack our clothes.
