Overall Member Rating
Beautiful ship, good service, so-so food.
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Cabin review: 6283
First time we tried an inside room and for just a little more we chose the Promenade inside stateroom with views of the promenade through a large bay window. The room is very small. Two people can't pass around the bed at the same time. The shower was very small. Luckily we both fit easily but if you are bigger, not sure. No outlets in bathroom. Only one above desk. There is a second one but you need a European adapter which we have but didn't bring. Our room steward did a good job but I think we saw him 3-4 times only. He did leave the usual animals made from the towels, cute. No chocolates on the pillows at night, bummer. Yes, when they do the lame shows on the promenade late at night you can hear it but otherwise the room is quiet. Comfy bed. We did meet Mario the guy who cruises something like 50 out of 52 weeks a year. Must have an iron stomach to eat cruise food. Don't think we would choose this room or one like it in the future. Too small.
