Relaxing and unneccessarily expensive
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We needed no fancy rooms, so we decided to book the smallest inside cabin as they call it. I do not regret it but however, in the future if we do go on a cruise again I would probably want to book oceanview since I realized my boyfriend can get a little fatigued by the dimmed lighting of the inside cabin with nothing but a view of the small sink and shower and medicine cabinets.
i had no idea what to expect of the daily free food in the buffet area but it turned out to be excellent. the menu was always the same for breakfast,lunch, and dinner but at least none of the ended up with food poisoning. which is probably why they have 14 restaurants for you to choose from, we did cave into the temptations and tried 2 of them. tappanyaki and chinese restaurant. both were good, but being the true New Yorker that i am, i was a tough critic.
the staff had lots of energy and very friendly. although i'd have to say toward the end of the trip they looked worn out, and less More smiles. i wonder how many hour they work? or how often/not as often they sleep throughout the whole 7nights/8 day cruise?
the cabin making staffs were very nice since they did not except tip when we left them on the table since $12 gratuity fee is charged to your bill daily. Less

Cabin review: ID12062 Inside
i had 12th floor near front deck we picked it because it helped with less movement front boat rocking we had suite 12062. and it was a workout just walking to the cabin. if you are not careful and you do not pay attention to the carpet he color and odds and evens cabins signs you can easily walk to miles journey to reach your cabin. we chose the inside cabin. the closet was enough for me and my bf even though i brought 8 different outfits for 7 night 8 day cruise. the bed was 2 twins pushed into one with latches in between so it doesn't separate. it wasnt comfortable but we liked the nice sheets. if you dont put do not disturb they will walk right into your cabin while your naked. there is no toothpaste or toothbrush. toilet seats are very uncomfortable. if your not careful u can fall in. airplane style toilet seats. if you lose your towel they charge you on the last day of your stay.Read All Inside (ID) Reviews >>
