I traveled this summer (2014) with my boyfriend. This was our first cruise. We purchased the Faster to the Fun deal which was somewhat convenient. This allowed us to embark at 11am and was able to go through the same lines as the platinum cruisers. Also we were given the option for late or early disembarkation. The cruise took us to St,Thomas, Half moon Cay, Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk. Our room was on the Panorama deck, in 1067, a balcony room. The room was next to the elevators and the door to the Lido deck. Pre-cruise i thought that it would be an issue with the noise, but we had NO problems with this room. Hardly heard any noise coming from the outside that was too disturbing. Didn't have any problems sleeping. The dinning room experience was lovely once we came up with a trick. When we first went to dinner the first two night, we went around 6:00 because we have the "your time dinning" and couldn't believe how long it took between courses. It took probably took 45 minutes between seating....then appetizer...dinner...dessert. We were very disappointed. We started going later to dinner (around 8:30) and seen a huge difference. We ended up with an amazing waiter named Orlando. Him and his wait partners were so attentive and sweet. They made us feel so welcomed and at home. On the last night it was my birthday and they sung to me and it was so nice. The ship was so huge, we didn't explore it all even though we were there for 7 days. Next summer we plan on going to the Western Caribbean, hopefully on the conquest again or the Breeze which i heard was very nice.
