We had great weather with calm seas. The only rougher part was leaving Cartagena Columbia till we got to the islands in the Caribbean. The cruise was just enough at sea days and port days. Skip the "Easy Antigua in Guatemala" Nothing easy about it. Long drive and the assault of street vendors is trying! We learned to take the shorter tours as more than 3 hours on a tour bus is too much. Did breakfast and most lunches at O'Sheehans and dinner in the Aqua Restaurant. Do not recommend the buffet for dinner unless it's the Seafood Night. Lunches at the buffet was plentiful, more than we wanted to eat. Did O'Sheehan for burgers and wings mostly. Staff are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Premium Drink Package is worth it. High quality alcohol and wine (no bar liquor like at the all-inclusive resorts) Great choice of bottled beers. Internet is slow and expensive. Best to catch a cafe on shore with free wifi, or just go dark for two weeks! Was an enjoyable , relaxing cruise.

Relaxing cruise!

Cabin Review

Obstructed Oceanview
Cabin OK 8580
Great obstructed view cabin, view between 2 lifeboats. Can see the water . Very central location to midship elevators and stairs and fwdship elevators and stairs. O'Sheehan restaurant and bar down the hall and the pool and buffet down the hall with an elevator to 12th floor. Main atrium with main desks and entertainment one floor down. Beware of Cabins 8608 and that end, great view between the lifeboats but there was a compressor outside that would go on and off all day and night.
