I had a great trip on this cruise. The crew members were friendly and polite.  I got to meet new people who became friends. The entertainment was great. Loved the comedians that came had me in laughing the whole time. The captain made the decision not to return back as planned because of Hurricane Matthew and took us to another port to a beautiful place - coastal Maya. And the crew scrambled to come up with new menu and entertainment for the extra day. 

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was small but it was cozy. The cleaning lady was so nice and friendly.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Getting on the boat was no trouble but because of the hurricane getting off was a bit long because no one knew when we could get off a day then once we able to get off, only the elevator was working, so it a bit of wait to get downstairs too.

Bring your own water if you can. If not get the drink packages, the water on the boat isn't the best.
