Celebrity or Wow ?!?!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We flew into FLL and stayed in Fort Lauderdale prior to cruise. Took All Service Shuttle from airport, around FLL and to Miami port, Darren was great.
Embarkation was smooth and efficient, room was available by 1 pm. Simple and efficient mustered drill and we set off at around 4:30.
Room - on 10th floor forward in Concierge Class , was very spacious and clean. Balcony was spacious and clean. Allan our room Stuart was great. Nice robes in room. Decor typical. Beds comfortable. Same as Oasis
Food - MDR was Opus on Deck 4 for my time dining. We mostly had Oscar and crew and they were great. Food was very good and the most options seen on any of our previous cruises. We did many breakfasts from room service and they where spot on. We did a couple of on the go breakfasts from caffe bacio, great coffee. We More did most lunches at pool while on the ship from Mast Grill for burgers and fries or buffet, again food was good. For Specialty Dining we did the Lawn Club Grill, open air dining for flat breads and meats. Great spot, did it twice. Did not go to any of the other specialty restaurants, but heard great reviews. Did the Porch once for lunch, ok sandwich and chips. Overall, food a little better than Oasis.
Drinks - we had the beverage package and upgraded it to premium. Wine selection could be better, but we navigated thru it. Sunset bar was great for port send off and a cigar. Martini bar was cool, but the Molecular Bar is a must. Bars better than Oasis
Entertainment - did a couple of shows in theatre, they where ok, had better experience on RCLOasis. Bands around the ship where great though.
Pool - main pool great, never had a problem to find loungers. Four hot tubs never too busy. Adult area nice as well, overall better than RC Oasis. Better kids pools though on Oasis.
Overall - common areas had nice feel, reminded me of Palazzo in Las Vegas. Designers did a great job. Areas in the core of ship on various floors, had various feels, Library, Hideout, Game On all suited their purpose. Arcade was small. Lawn area interesting, but, needs a revamp, useless space. Didn't go to any of the art work displays, but I heard some great comments on board. Crew was great and polite. Ride was a little rough on Day 1 and 2, Oasis does better at handling seas. Overall, I would recommend this ship and hope on it's continued success. Less
