Destinations and Excursions
3 beautiful destinations to which I had never been. They were so exciting.
Cabin / Stateroom
The inside cabin was fine. my only concern was that after they put the beds together to make a king bed for my husband and I, I could not go around the right side (or left) of the bed to get into the bed. The arm of the sofa was too close to the end of the bed. I guess most people would crawl into the bed, but I have titanium knees and I can't get on my knees....It was hard to scoot to the top of the bed.
Port Canaveral, Florida
this was our beginning point.
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Excursions were way too expensive.... I would have loved to do a snorkeling trip but it wasn't possible on my budget.
Kralendijk, Bonaire
Beautiful....We rented a car after we got off the ship.... Great way to see the small and beautiful island. We had some local food and saw so much of the island.
Willemstad, Curacao
We couldn't affors any offered excursions, so we got a tour bus at a reasonable price after we got off the ship. We saw so much of the island and learned much about its history. The tour company dropped us off at a beautiful public beach with chairs and a pool and eating places, then picked us up 2 hours later...Love it!
Oranjestad, Aruba
Not my favorite...We got a tour after we got off the ship. It was great...The island was very crowded and the beaches weren't the best... Wish we could have found an affordable snorkeling trip.


Even though the ship was scheduled to go into dry harbor after the next cruise, it was so well maintained and luxurious. Al personnel seemed to desire to make sure that we all had a great time.
