Flew into FLL the same morning and got on board as easily as last time. Unfortunately, the people we were meeting were held up due to airline delays and almost didn't make the ship. In hindsight, should have gone the day before to avoid unnecessary stress.
As mentioned before, the staff were absolutely wonderful. From the room attendant to the dining room. Everyone was friendly, always smiling and couldn't do enough. I had a Central Park balcony, but if done again, would definitely take an ocean view.
We all ate breakfast in the Windjammer. Crowded, but there was always someone to find us (6) a table. Never an issue. Food was plentiful and good. Don't understand why some criticize the Windjammer. Especially good in the afternoon was the Solarium Bistro, as well as the Opus Dining room for dinner. We had a great table and had plenty of laughs.
Now for the problem areas: Smoking in the casino and way too crowded. No way can you separate the room to avoid the odor. The smell hit us in the face before we even entered. Chased us away from the tables many times. Also, on that subject... why have numerous 21 tables that were mostly empty, and only one Let It Ride, which is immensely popular (couldn't get near it, even though it was in the smoking section).
Entertainment was terrific. (Isn't it time to change Hairspray)? Comedy show was great. Sorry it was only 1 hour long that's how good it was.
Debarking was a breeze. I highly recommend signing up for the valet service, didn't see our luggage until JFK.
All in all, a wonderful time was had by all.
