Really great time, great crew!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Food quality overall was as expected, just ok. We've come to expect OK so it's no biggie. We didn't use Portofino or Chops this trip, they may have been better, but we're tired of having More to pay extra for better food, so we make do. The service was excellent though, all over the ship!
We're diamond and this ship does have a diamond lounge on the 14th floor with a great view. There are tables, chairs and some couches. There is a specialty coffee machine, a very nice continental breakfast and complimentary cocktails in the evening from 5-8:30 with good named liquor choices.
My kids enjoyed the Adventure Ocean program, my daughter is 10 so was in Voyagers, during Spring Break, it was packed. Not enough kids always participated though and many times they combined the Explorers and Voyagers in one room. Always had something going on. This was the first cruise that my son was 12 so in the teen program for 12-14 year olds. Though there was a busy schedule, he was not interested in much of it so opted out most of time. They've been cruising a while so always find their groove.
The pool area on this ship is much larger, with the additional H2O zone, there are several hot tubs and what seemed to be a lot of room at the pool. I did notice though that Solarium allowed kids 16 and up. Once one of the cantilevered hot tubs was filled with teens. I thought these were adult only? Even the Pool and Hot tub rules in this area reads No kids under 16. Oh well. Having kids myself, I'm not bothered by them, but they took up one whole hot tub and once jumped in the pool splashing everyone sitting nearby. Though I've seen adults do the same, we are at the pool after all right?
Overall we loved our cruise, we do our best to have moderate expectations and enjoy cruises for what they are, affordable, relaxing, thoughtless vacations where the whole family can have both time together and time on our own to do things we like individually. Can't beat that! Less
Cabin review: 6674
Room was just as expected, lovely balcony space. View blocked to the right by hump cabins, but still very nice. Most wonderful cabin attendant ever!
