  • I can give here only the assessment at the "embarkation" and also when arriving after a cruise - all top!

  • Gigantic harbour, much larger than that of Miami, you can get lost easily in there, but when you know exactly where you have to go is very well signposted.

  • I never knew where all the cruise ship dock now I know
  • No Valet Service :( Huge port and with no clear directions it can be a hassle to navigate when there are many cruise ships in port that are loading and unloading.
