This was a reunion cruise of 5 couples, seniors, of course, having been friends for 50 yrs. and we wore T-shirts one night which said so. It was a perfect cruise for a group like us. We were all so worried about the norovirus which had plagued 3 other ships in the previous weeks that we were all fortified with our personal medicine chest. Fortunately, no one had to use any of it. You could not miss the Purell dispensers all over the ship.
The ship is lovely but nothing exceptional that we had not seen before. The best part was the entertainment. The comedian was so funny that we went back for his late show. The ice show was exquisite as well as the circus, but the Saturday Night Fever was fabulous. Not only was the talent superb but the sets and special effects were outstanding, better than some Tony award winning Broadway shows. The food was satisfactory for us, however some of our friends did send their dinners back with some complaints. The waiters were very accommodating in bringing them another dinner. The last night we splurged and ate @ Portofino. Save your money. Not worth it. The service was extremely slow. The waiter did not have an assistant so he had to serve and clear the table himself.
Best day was our day in Belize. Would have liked a cabin closer to the elevators, but ours was very nice. Lots and lots of babies in strollers.Never been on a cruise with so many babies and toddlers. And lots and lots of school kids. We never use the pool or hot tub but they both looked very busy. Plenty of activities for kids of all ages. Embarkation and debarkation not too dreadful. Been on better and been on worse. Since we are Floridians we drove to the Embassy Suites in Ft. Lauderdale, parked for $34 for the 5 days and they provided a shuttle to take us to and from the port. Super.
