Cabin was a good size and thanks to Leevon was always clean.

Ship tip

The ship was a bit more dated than I expected...the theater seats were horrible...luckily the shows were only 45 minutes each. She is in need of an overhaul.

Because we did not go through customs in Miami on the way out we had to be the first off to go through customs at 6:30am. Only issue was we had to wait almost 2 hours for our excursion.
