Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was nice - a little small for two people. The bed was a little hard but we slept ok. Really enjoyed the towel animals daily.

Ship tip

If possible book a larger cabin. But overall the cruise was magnificent!

Grand Turk Island

We booked an excursion, but was unable to get on the bus because they overbooked was a little upset since I had a broken foot and it took me a while to get down to the area we were departing from. They did give us our money back which we appreciated but probably wouldn’t book again.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Loved the port - beautiful! We took an excursion that took us all around and so enjoyed. Was able to go through the town a bit and enjoyed the nightlife a little.
