Interesting

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Entering the ship was amazing. The royal promenade was wider then we expected. Then reality set in, you couldn't move.. Wall to wall people.. We thought this is not for us, but to our most pleasant surprise, the crowds had disapated by the next day.. We had a boardwalk balcony towards the back of the ship.. Such an awesome view, of the Aqua theatre and the boardwalk below.. Spent a lot of time out there with better than expected room service.. The boardwalk area is never crowded, unless there a show. Central park was never crowded either.. Giovanni's was disappointing, very loud, food was adequate, and weak drinks.. Windjammer was always crowded, and difficult to find a seat, as it's SMALL...Hairspray was great, some other shows just ok.. Entertainment in lounges was fair, the Schooner bar was horrible, so much better on the FOS. .The Royal promenade got to be a real nuisance it was like running a gauntlet People yelling pushing 25% off tickets in your face from watches, art work, More jewelry, and it was loud, and crowded.. Huge lines developed when the $50. watches were going on sale for $19.99..We just retreated back to our room, or a quiet spot in central park..

Great cabin awesome views, of the boardwalk the Aqua theatre, and the gigantic view of the sea..The interior of the cabin is on the small size. The closet by the bed is a pain, the smallish shower is a nuisance, but they had at least a 32" flat screen tv. that was nice.. The interactive menu was slow at best.. The view from the balcony made up for all the shortcomings for a week...

Labadee was ok, Falmouth sucked unless you are doing a tour ,Cozumel was Cozumel you can always find something interesting to do.. Overall We glad we did it, would I do it again ? probably not.. Less
