Excellent itinerary!  Great way to see many islands to see where you may want to just fly to and stay for a week sometime in the future!  However, with only one day at sea and going to port each day....all day.....the beverage package may not be worth it unless you drink an awful lot in the evenings!  At $100 per day extra per couple...that adds almost an extra $1000 to your cruise price! Do you have that kind of bar bill at home in a week?   The food seemed to be more catered to "Puerto Rican" tastes in the buffet areas....probably because it leaves from San Juan and many Puerto Rican people were on the ship.  I would have loved to have had other international type menus rather than just mainly Latin-type food.  Also enjoyed that this ship was not a "mega" floating building in the sea.  It was walkable without feeling like you are "lost at sea"  on your ship!


Cabin / Stateroom
Best room on the ship as far as we were concerned! Viewing the stars from a back balcony Priceless!
