Cabin / Stateroom

Our adult son was with us in a balcony room. His “bed” was not comfortable. But Paul did everything he could accommodate us and made it the best that he could.

Great ship. Food good - just an older smaller ship. But we truly enjoyed it.

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

Would never set foot on the island again. The locals are terrible. 2-3 guys were trying to make me buy and did not want to let me out of their booth. Only when I told them I would get a cop would they let me out. Horrible. RC needs to know how aggressive the locals are!
