Review summary

Great cruise, everything went smoothly. Thomas Houser, our TA, had things lined up and nailed down so it was a very enjoyable trip. We'll be calling him again when the urge to cruise hits again.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
Didn't do an excursion, just went out from the hotel to restaurants and shops.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
San Juan is always a nice place to visit. Went on an excursion that took us to the main points of interest and had a very interesting driver,tour guide. Good stop.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Also a nice place to visit. Our excursion guide did a nice job of pointing out things of interest and the van was comfortable.

Samana, Dominican Republic

3 out of 5
We were tendered and weren't allowed ashore because of not getting approval from the local authorities. We hung around for over three hours and the captain made the decision to raise the anchor and leave, which was the right decision, and about an hour after leaving the ship received word that we were approved to go ashore but we were gone. So other than seeing the island from the ship and watching the police/government patrol boat circle the ship it was kind of a quiet experience. The weather was beautiful though. We had an excursion scheduled and it was refunded so that's about it.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Another good excursion. Visited Atlantis and saw many other interesting sights on the tour around the island. Good stop.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
It was the slickest disembarkation I've gone through. Facial ID so you didn't even have to que up and go through a line.
