Review summary

Overall, this was a fantastic cruise. My husband and I prefer the smaller ships due to the nicer people and more personal service. There was a lot to do for us but I wouldn’t recommend this ship or itinerary for children. Even young people in their 20’s might want a bigger ship to stay busy.

It’s a small ship but that’s part of the charm. People (staff and guests) are friendlier

We loved Havana. We did the mixology shore excursion and had a great time. The food is Amazing!

My husband and I opted to walk around near the port. It is very sketchy in areas but didn’t seem too dangerous. They have a long stretch of street vendors selling souvenirs. Way cheaper than Havana.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman is a gem. Super expensive but one of our favorite islands.
