Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Celebrating a 50th birthday, 16 of us had the best vacation ever! 8 couples. Smooth embarkation and fast disembarkation. Very comfortable beds and sheets. Room steward was friendly and we loved the towel animals. 6 pm seating in main dining room. Carlos was a wonderful waiter. Italian night was fabulous. On lobster night, we had reserved an upgrade in Chops, so our wonderful waiter called and made sure Chops had lobster tails to go with our filet mignon! Great service. We did a private wine tasting in Vintage with tapas. Robert was fabulous teaching us all about two whites and two reds. Highlights include sing along in English pub, karaoke, line dancing, rising tide bar on 70s night, piano bar, dancing in Dazzles and Blaze, jazz club, easy listening on the 17th deck. Hairspray musical was outstanding! As was high diving show, ice skating show, comedy club, headliner, acrobatic show! Spa was heavenly. Won money in casino on slots and blackjack. Solarium was our favorite place for More
breakfast and lunch and to just relax. Main dining room was slow for sit down breakfast, but there was a buffet there too. Windjammer buffet was frequently full for breakfast with a line. Park cafe was a great alternative for breakfast and lunch too. Central Park is very romantic at night. Loved the donuts in the boardwalk. Promenade cafe has free coffee instead of buying Starbucks. Cafe has yummy sandwiches and desserts too. Jogging track on deck five had a walking lane. Saw the sunrise one morning here. There was a full moon one night up on the top deck. Saw one sunset leaving Cozumel, otherwise we we were at dinner when it set.
We did not mind an inside room. You do not spend much time in your room anyway, but our friends with balconies loved ordering room service and eating breakfast on the balcony or buying a bottle of wine and having a glass at night on the balcony. Less

Port and Shore Excursions
We went to mr sanchos all inclusive beach. My favorite! $55 included beach chair in the sun, table and chairs under Palm trees, delicious buffet of fajitas, tacos, rice, salad, soup and more. You could also order off the menu. We had many, many plates of coconut shrimp! All alcohol- we had many beers and margaritas. Pool with swim up bar was so fun. Kayaking, snorkeling included. Mariachi band came over and sung to us. You could pay to have a picture with large beautiful birds or an iguana. Dish of ice cream included. Store to buy Mexican hats, etc. The cruise director, diving team and headliner band was here too, so you know this was the place to be!!!
Dreamer catamaran and snorkeling. Fantastic! Sailed around Montego Bay, snorkeled at coral reef and saw fish. Staff took pictures to buy above and below water. Lunch was yummy Jamaican patties and fruit bread and all the beer, rum punch and water we wanted. Went to protected island habitat and the staff brought a large jellyfish on board and starfish for us to touch. Great music and line dancing on the way back. Bathroom on board.
