Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Never cruised before. Booked the last minute deal, a starboard side balcony totaling $1800.-including tax. Read a lot of reviews and found out the cruise beyond our expectations. Beautiful weather! Took the JFK space center tour by ourselves and shared the taxi ride with the newly-wed couple Christs. Did the snorkel by myself, saw a lot warm water fishes and walked around the center man-made lake of the GSC. Enjoyed the private island very much. Walked to the paradise island and bought the Discovery Atlantis tickets in the casino. Beautiful ship, clean room and great food. Endless of music, dance and entertainment shows on-board. Each crew member was working very hard to make the guest happy. Received 4 anniversary cakes during the 7 days cruise. Enjoyed every minute of the cruise. Nice to cruise in May and no crowds at all. Thank you GEM!
