Very nice cruise, it had been several years since my husband and I had been on a cruise.  Lots of changes but mostly for the better.  There isn't any longer 24 hr buffets which was fine with us but the midnight buffet used to be very special. Soft drinks and alcoholic beverages are extra expense as well as 3-4 of the restaurants.  Shore excursions are at the discreetion of the traveler. Margarita, our guide in San Juan was very difficult to understand.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin seemed very clean, however, there was an odor of mildew or mold that seemed to come from the bathroom. Nothing visible.

Ship Tip

A wonderful ship for seniors who enjoy cruising. I found the Spa attendants to not be very helpful. There was not any attendant present in the mineral therapy spa. The fee to have your nails done was much overpriced and unreasonable in my opinion.
