To Getaway or not to Getaway

Sail Date: June 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
The ship is new and it's obvious in that the bathrooms are in pristine condition, the cabins are not very large and the arrangement of the closet leaves something to be desired. We had a balcony which was hardly worth the money. It was the size of a postage stamp and you could barely stretch out your legs while seated. We've had balconies on Celebrity ships and had lounge type chairs and were able to have a decent sized table that we had breakfast on during a European cruise. The bed was comfortable and our cabin steward was wonderful, going as far as actually remembering our names. The pool is crowded as usual and if you didn't go up early and grow some things on a chair you couldn't get one. The pool for the children could really use a sunning ledge like the adult only pool had. The five water slides were a great deal of fun for kids and adults alike. The kids club for children aged 6-9 had more activities for boys than girls and our granddaughter didn't really like going. She loves More the kids clubs on Royal Caribbean and Disney ships. The food was not bad and we liked the free style dining times. We thought it was a bit deceiving talking about all the different places you can eat for free whe the menus at three of them are exactly the same. The prime rib night was especially good. The service in Savor and Taste was somewhat slow but the staff was usually friendly. Perhaps when tips are included and you don't get the same staff people, they slack off a bit. We've traveled Aqua Class on Celebrity several times and didn't find that the case there. We tried Moderno, the Brazillian restaurant and La Cuccina, the Italian restaurant. Both were fine with Moderno being the better if the two. The Italian food was what I would have expected on the regular dining room.The 2 big shows, Legally Blonde and Burn the Floor were very good. The comedy acts were fine. We didn't even get off at the ports of call as we've been all those places many times. We found it a good time to enjoy the quiet of the ship. Less
