Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Our cruise was saved by the wonderful table mates that we were matched up with. I am thinking they sat us together because of our age group. We hung out before, during and after dinner. All 10 of us were disappointed with the dining room menu options, with the More exception of surf and turf night. The menu choices were strange. One night, three of us sent our entrees back and ordered the steak that is available on the every night menu. Most of the soups were too salty and tasted like them came out of can, with the exception of the French Onion, which was a hit at our table every night.
The ship is very nice, the Lido deck dining is wonderful! It is very quiet on the back of the ship (adult only area). The pool in the center of the boat is filled with lots of activity. So you can have your choice of quiet or active.
My husband thoroughly enjoyed his massage in the Spa.
Our cabin stewards were amazing!
Overall the SERVICE was excellent, and it was a good experience. Less

Rooms were very nice.. Plenty of room for both of us, and all of our clothing and stuff! Loved having the full bath tub.
Port and Shore Excursions
AWESOME!!! Loved swimming with the dolphins and seeing the sea turtle farm. The staff at the Dolphin site were very friendly and you could tell they love their jobs. The dolphins are powerful but gentle and loving. What a great experience
