Thanks for the reply ChrisM. I can't explain the delay you experienced, but with the volume of cruises you've done, I guess odds are you'll hit a few bumps now and then. Like I said, book a Radiance class, Voyager class, or Freedom OTS out of Miami or Port Lauderdale. Be sure Labadee is one of the stops, and I think you'll find a new favorite spot, especially for the beaches.
Good luck, Steve
