21 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 12, 2017
Ship: Rotterdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 2513
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 months ago

We were very pleased with the service.  We loved the location of our cabin (3319) but would not recommend it to anyone.  Wooden bench located outside cabin window stored hose that was used to wash the decks every morning at 5am.  Very noisy.

Itinerary was great. I would highly recommend this cruise as it covers many of the islands in the 21 days.  Had beautiful weather and really enjoyed our dining room table location and 4 other companions.   

Showroom Entertainment on board was exceptional.  We went almost every evening.  Loved piano man Stryker and Adagio also.

Liked being on a smaller ship again (1300 passengers). 

Ship was in great condition.  TV system really needs upgrade.  We were told this would be done while in dry dock this fall.

Our cabin was 3319 not 2513. It was an ocean view. Would not recommend cabin - it was very noisy due to attached wooden bench under window that stored hoses for deck washing. Also located near a door that banged when winds were high.
Location was very convenient - which way why we selected. Sorry it was too noisy - sleeping was hard after the 5am deck washing wake up.

Ship Tip

Great ship even though it is 20 years old. Very well maintained. Because there are only about 1300 passengers we always found seating at lunch up on deck.
Pizza station very good, also loved the Mexican lunch and the burgers.
Also easy to get great salads from salad station most of the day.

Natives were not friendly. Did not feel comfortable walking around the port.

Wonderful port. Worth taking the tender trip in. Again great snorkeling. Felt very comfortable walking in town.

Key West, Florida Did not visit port

We did not go to Key West because of high winds. Visited Cozumel instead.
