The ship was nice, however due to weather and for some reason having to leave San Juan at 1:30 we were not able to enjoy any of our stops. I went on an 8 day cruise and didn't touch the ocean once.

Wish we would have had more time to explore San Juan we had to be back on the ship at 1:30. Huge Bummer

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island) Did not visit port

Weather! The ship left Labadee before we could explore the island..............another huge bummer
