Very good....but with a few disappointments
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Overall, the cruise was enjoyable....but there were a few areas that could use some improving.
Food....it was excellent. We ate in the MDR each night, except for one visit to the Tuscan Grill. The service by Melisa and Igor was wonderful and all of the menu choices were wonderful. We ate breakfast most days in the Oceanview Buffet. Only ate one lunch up there, but all meals there were very good. If you don't want to eat a lot and just want a small bite, the coffee cafe had great little sandwiches and mini desserts. The Tuscan Grill is not to be missed...food was outstanding! Chocolate fondue for dessert.
Entertainment: This is the major area, that we were disappointed in. The production shows....Ghost Light....drab background..good singers, but the dancers appeared to be very young. The juggler was funny, but the singer who did famous singers was lacking. He tried to make it up with energy. All the other cruises we have been on, had amazing production shows...lots More of backgrounds and costume changes...on this cruise, it was pretty blah.
Activities: What activities? No games like the Marriage game, no other games but a few trivia contests. No extra entertainment shows like on Princess. We often found ourselves with little to do. I don't think a 60's party where you have to stand in a crowded stairway to see them perform on the steps is that entertaining. The show was only about 20 minutes as who wants to stand for that long in a crowd? We got the feeling this was a cruise for people who think they were too sophisticated for games.
Accommodations...very nice, big bathroom.
Ports: All OK, but didn't get to Grand Cayman as the sea was too rough.
Overall, it was a good cruise, I just wish there had been more to do. Less
