Ship tip

I didn't care for the atrium layout. also, the Havana section is a huge waste of space. They have that private pool area, that you could look down on from the deck above and there was no one at it. Also the Havana themed bar had maybe 10 people in it a night. Havana section, as cool as The hammocks are on the private balconies aren't very private at all. People can walk right by and see you on your balcony.

Ports of call

Oranjestad, Aruba

We purchased a day pass at an all-inclusive resort. beach was beautiful however the water was too rough to snorkel you couldn't see your hand in front of your face and there was a drop as soon as you walked into the water so you stumbled into the water and had to be pulled back out.

Willemstad, Curacao

Hands down best snorkeling I've ever done in my life at Porto Playa Mari.

La Romana, Dominican Republic

The beach was gorgeous, the boat ride there was fun, but I found the vendors to be very pushy.
