A Quick Getaway
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
This was a 4 night cruise over Christmas/Hanukkah. . We really don't like the large ships, but this was the only option. Lots of families with kids, but they didn't present a problem. The dining room staff was excellent. The food, for the most part was good. Check in went smoothly as did the departure. Our stateroom was spacious as was the balcony. We were able to watch the sunset on the way south. We didn't take a shore excursion through the ship, but booked a private tour that met our needs. The entertainment was very good. The production of GREASE was first rate. There did not seem to be as many activities during the day for adults, other than Bingo. I found that the smoke in the casino was bothersome and we didn't spend too much time there. They had the menorah lighting ceremony on both Saturday and Sunday evenings which I though was very nice. I'd sail on RC again, but on a smaller ship.
