Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Always great service. Fabulous location. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Happy  our waiters were great. Our cabin attendant was very nice and gave us extra blankets when we asked. I would like more towel animals on our bed. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Good room. We did find a nasty smelly crusty pair of socks under the bed the day we checked out. They did not belong to us. That was pretty gross.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very disorganized unimformed crew on the disembarking. This is this first time i had to wait in line that zig zagged all over the ship for nearly an hour just to get off the ship. Then customs was very backed up. Not sure if they were short staffed or what the hold up was. Took nearly 2 hours to get off and out of customs. Not typical.
