My wife and I always book a balcony cabin on the higher decks, on this trip they didn't have any balcony cabins available at the time we booked our cruise. we decided to book a Ocean View cabin. we were told the only Ocean view cabins that were available were on deck one. This cabin was the perfect cabin having two bathrooms; one with a tub and the other with a shower. this was very helpful while getting ready for evening dinners as well as just getting ready to go anywhere. I highly recommend this cabin, we've even booked another one on the Horizon for February 2019.

My wife and I found a wonderful little place to get a drink a few years ago, and we've been back several times. always a good time at the "Best Mojito Bar" it's located on Columbusstraat 6, not to far from the cruise port.

Oranjestad, Aruba
