Review summary

This cruise was my wife and I's honeymoon and it was the perfect choice. It was the perfect balance of available entertainment and adventure with plenty of relaxation. It was definitely a perk to have room service included in the price of the tickets, so you don't have to pay again each time you use it while on the ship.

Our cabin was perfect for us. The view was nice. It was a wonderful get away for the two of us when we didn't feel social.

Ship tip

Be advised that they (like many cruise lines apparently) charge gratuity to your shipboard account each day. You can alter the amount if you like, which I originally planned to do; however, the sevice was so good the whole time that I felt that the tip was about right for the trip.

We did the tourist thing and went to see la bufadora. We were disappointed. Also the restaurant Habana Banana had terrible food at ridiculous pricing.
