Not the trip we expected
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We did catch up with the cruise and maybe the stress of missing the embarkation overshadowed our trip but we were disappointed somewhat. The food was the best on a cruise ship that we have experienced. I do grow weary of the cruise companies charging for some dining rooms and even entertainment. Each time they asked for my card, I was afraid there was going to be a charge. The ropes course, waterslides and rock climbing wall were great. Entertainment overall was weak, the smoke in the casino was overwhelming. The non smoking side is a pathetic after thought--certainly not equal to the smoking side. On sea days the pool and surrounding area is way too small. Our favorite spot was the Spice H2O lounge--huge TV and never overcrowded. Debarkation was a joke--took us over 2 1/2 hours to get off and we carried all our luggage. Less

The location of this room was great. It was right off the elevator and very handy not having to walk down the long hallways. Overall, it was basically as expected except that there was a strange smell in the room that never got better. It was there when we arrived. Not overwhelmingly bad but always there. Almost smelled like the previous guests had really bad body odor that just continued to linger, it was little bit of a mix of body odor and maybe mildew?? Couldn't pinpoint it exactly. I kept thinking it would get better or the room steward would notice and try to do something but it stayed. Also, the carpet was more worn that I would have expected for such a new ship--maybe something happened with the carpet that caused the odor.
