This was a family vacation and first time for the kids to be on a ship. We arrived on Saturday and stayed at the Crown Plaza and it's close to Port Everglades. Check in was quick and easy. We arrived about 10:30. I am a gold member and went to the gold line to check in. We were all checked in about 10 minutes. We had to wait until 12:00 to board. When we got on the ship my mouth dropped. I very beautiful ship. We walked around till 1:00 till our room was ready. We took Starbuck gift cards and got a coffee and walked the ship. I got the advice off here for the gift cards. Very nice not to have to put it on the sea pass
We hung out at the solarium most of the time on days at sea. We are early risers and would get some breakfast and then go get a chair and layout till about noon. The ship is so big we took the afternoon to walk around the ship.
We still did not get to see the whole ship. I guess we will have to go on it again. There is something for everyone to do.
The food is very good on the ship. We tried different place to eat and enjoyed them all. The boys love dinner time because the could eat all they wanted in the main dining room. The hotdogs are great too.
