Review summary

Everything about this cruise easy easy. Only trouble was the airport on the return flight. Give extra time. San Juan Airport security is one of the worst I have ever encountered. I have flown a lot so that’s saying something.

All always great.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Always good & clean. Dining is at the extreme opposite end from the theater so it was a little tougher on a couple in our party with mobility issues.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This is a very nice, large room. We had six in it (concerted sofa into a double). Younger two enjoyed their little bunk bed alcove. Awesome view from this room directly out the front of the ship.

Ship tip

Eat early at the windjammer. It can get insane during peak times.
