We chose our cabin after my husband researched the aft ones. The view could not be beat, as one can see almost all of the port or other islands. Embarkation/Disembarkation was worse than going through TSA at any airport hub. It totally should have taken a lot less than the 30 minutes, coming and going in Port Everglades. Our cabin did not disappoint, as it had lots of closet spaces and plenty of drawers. However, the bathroom could have used an extra sink and some shelves for toiletry storage. The bathtub, with its jets was a complete dream. So good for a soak and rest! Wished that I could have folded it up, and put in the suitcases! The shower was a good one, with a great showerhead that could be adjusted for different streams. The overall shower needed to have a different kind of door that sealed, as there was a stream of water that escaped out the bottom and flooded the bathroom! Dining did not disappoint...plenty of venues and choices. Whether your tastes run to steak, seafood or ice cream, it was all good. The wait staffs and managers were totally top notch!! We had one of our shore excursions cancel, due to nature, and the others were a complete surprise with the places we saw and areas we viewed! Would do it again in a heartbeat!!

Cabin S6 D736
Our cabin did not disappoint, as it had lots of closet spaces and plenty of drawers.
However, the bathroom could have used an extra sink and some shelves for toiletry storage.
The bathtub, with its jets was a complete dream. So good for a soak and rest! Wished that I could have folded it up, and put in the suitcases! The shower was a good one, with a great showerhead that could be adjusted for different streams. The overall shower needed to have a different kind of door that sealed, as there was a stream of water that escaped out the bottom and flooded the bathroom!
There was a nice couch, chairs, and mini-bar. Boylyn, our steward never let us run out of ice, bottled water or fresh fruit. He kept us very healthy!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Everglades Tour
    Of course the alligators must have been on vacation somewhere else, as we only got to see just two of them. Bubba was a nervous critter, and a bit suspicious that our group invaded his space! Don't know the name of the other gator we saw, but it also was watching the boat's every move!

    Saw the good side of the island, and also the bad damage that is still rampant. The recovery is a slow go, but thanks to tourism, they have a great start on it. Loved feeding the iguanas and going to the bakery. They were so fun, and good food! Loved Maho Beach and all the other beaches that we stopped at...especially the jets coming and going!!

  • ATV Tour
    We did not get to take the AVT tour as planned, due to some health issues that I was having. The most gracious manager and tour guide gave us a better option...it was the Jeep tour of the island.

  • Historic Site
    We drove all over the island, stopped at the Bluebeard's Castle. Took photos and then drove off. That was disappointing that we could not tour it, but were glad it was still standing due to the hurricanes!

  • Island Tour
    Loved the Pirate Museum! That was the most educational of everything we saw on the tour! Who knew that the pirates were there when Columbus and Drake discovered the areas!
