We did this trip last June in the reverse order.  Had a wonderful time.

Thanks for the reply I hope things are better by then.  We had a trip from Tampa to Barcelona on RCCL last April and it got cancelled due to the virus and RCCL give us a choice of future cruise credits of 125percent or our money back which would take a long time so we took the cruise credits which was a mistake we didnt get what we thought we would so i hope this trip isnt cancelled Did you book you own air?   Thanks  John

Yes, we did.  We wanted a stopover for a few days family visit in Minneapolis between Portland and central Florida on the way home.  Very different atmosphere on this size ship, of course, but the HOHO buses worked great, staff was friendly and efficient, and we loved our quiet third floor balcony.

That said, walls are very thin, rooms tiny, but well-equipped.  We loved having our own metal water-bottle to refill each day from the dispensers at the elevators on each floor...use them everyday here at home.  Food menus not as extensive nor as flexible as on ocean cruises, but plentiful and very American.  HOHO tour guides very knowledgeable and helpful.  Any specialty tours we added were worth the money. 

We too had to cancel our RCL 50th anniversary cruise with family for June...total bummer..we only got credit as a choice, and even tho we paid for all down payments (as we were treating for the rooms), they got the credit for their rooms, not us.  Getting 12 people's schedules organized for a trip was hard...thank goodness we cancelled just before final payment for all was due.
