1st (and last) time in an interior room. Got the cruise as a promotion from work and the travel agency that it came from wanted way too much for an upgrade. The room itself was small aand not much room to move around. Had some toilet issues where there was a clog somewhere and we had 2 periods where the toilets did not flush.

Ports of call

George Town, Grand Cayman

3rd time here...we always rent a jeep and drive to the other side of the island and hang at the restaurant in Chen Rio.

It's easy in Tampa. Big tip...if you are not taking your luggage off yourself...get a porter to take your bags as they have their own line through's worth the tip to the porter!!!
