Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was clean. Our Steward was the best! He greeted us daily by name. Overall the cabin was comfortable. The bathroom whoever, could of been a little more "fluffy friendly". I'm not a small person and it seemed a little cramped for room. A smaller sink (too large in my opinion) and removal of the sliding door (I think it is useless to have) near toilet would of helped a lot to give it a little extra room.

Ports of call

New York, New York

I didn't care for the city of New York. Very rude people. Not sure if I would use this port again. We got to NY 2 days before we boarded and I couldn't wait to get out of there. I'd rather fly to a port in Florida than go back to New York.

San Juan, Puerto Rico
