Agent 007 I sailed on the Fortuna in Feb. 2008 and we loved it. There were 60 of us in the group and the overall feeling was it was a good cruise. There were many more Europeans than Americans so we had some challenges. We quickly discovered a smile was the best way to acknowlege those who didn't speak English. The ship is beautiful and we felt it was fairly easy to navigate around on. I myself have cruised at least 15 times and felt the staff and food on this ship ranked amoung the best I'd ever had. The only problem we encountered was at the customer service desk...not the best for comunications with us. The food was definatley the best we'd ever had. Service in the dinning room was exceptional. Entertainment was also very good every night. If you like to dance this is the ship for you. Every night in many of the various lounges there were bands, trios, and many, many folks enjoying them. The cabin was excellet in size and layout. We were in a balcony and can't say anything bad about it. My only real complaint was our times in port. San Juan was a late afternoon arrival making siteseeing rough. Since I had been there several times before it was not a problem for me, we walked around until dark then went to the casino across from the dock. The stop in La Ramano could have been skipped as far as I'm concerned it was an evening stop with only one excursion offered to Kandalah night under the stars show. We did go and it was a nice show but it was all in Spanish so we had no idea what the actors/singers were saying. Costumes were beautiful along with the sets so we did enjoy it even if we didn't speak spanis. If you sail on the Fortuna to the Caribbean I'm sure you will enjoy it.
