The worst ship I've ever been on was HAL's Maasdam last year - as long as you avoid that, or the other Statendam Class ships, I think you'll be very happy. NCL isn't as bad as people make it out to...

Are you sure?? I was told by some Cruise Critic people on my last cruise that we won't. Hmmmm....that would be great if it's the case!

We are going to be visiting Parati on our upcoming cruise for a full day from 11am - 11pm. We are not beach, people, so we're trying to figure out if there's much to do other than that. Is the town...

It sounds fun! We just signed up for it. It makes sense to take advantage of these unique events that Azamara offers. We'll see you there =)

Thanks for all of the feedback! I think we will go ahead and switch our deposit over to HAL. I hate to write them off after one bad experience. And the itinerary is perfect.
