It was great flying from Boston to New York City to board the cruise ship (less than an hour). When choosing this cruise, we were a little nervous that the weather would be cold and the waters rough for the first several days. We were pleasantly surprised. On the first full day out at sea,we were able to walk the deck and sit out with only light sweaters. On the second day out, we were able to sit by the pool in our shorts. The ports of call were great for people who enjoy the beach, snorkling, or sailing. Cayo Levantado Beach Resort shore excursion was absolutely wonderful. It is a resort on an small island. The water was so clean and clear. The beach area was well maintained with plenty of beach chairs in sun or shade as you prefer. This was our first time with free-style cruising and we loved being able to eat whenever we wanted. We were always able to get a table for two (often by a window) when we ate in the dining room. We much preferred this to eating at large tables like many other cruise lines. It seemed so much more romantic that way. The length of the cruise was wonderful (8 nights) so you spent many days in the warm weather. The price was very reasonable too. We would definitely take this same cruise again if they have it in the future. A great cruise for the money
