This was the second time I have taken this particular cruise. As I live not too far from the port

it is an easy escape from winter weather. This crusie omitted 2 stops and arrived in Puerto Rico mid-afternoon, instead of i the morning.


The ship is older and has ben partially refurbished, but still needs some up-grades. The solarium area is quite small and very crowded on at sea days. 


Small amenities are being scaled back and it feels more like an economy hotel than a cruise.
