Overall Member Rating
Pleasantly surprised & overall enjoyable.
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
To start with, it is sometimes what you put into a cruise to get something out of it. We had certain expectations & goals of what we wanted on this cruise. Most of our goals were met. This was a very good value for us.
Embarkation went fairly well but once on the ship there was some confusion on validating our sea cards to get us into our rooms. Had to take time to have our cards checked at the service counter. Went to our room & our luggage arrived 10 minutes later. Unpacked & had lunch & then took a tour of the ship. A beautiful & easy to get around.
What we liked:
*We enjoyed the entertainment & shows. Great variety.
*The music & bands had variety & had fun dancing every night.
*The entertainment team got everyone involved & had fun with all the games & dance lessons.
*Dinner was nice & food was very adequate.
*Room Steward was great & always clean & neat More housekeeping though out the ship.
What we did not like:
*The SPA Gym had poor elliptical machines which for us is a must since tread mill is not for us. We only use Stationary Bike, Elliptical, & weight machines.
*Breakfast & lunch buffet could have had more variety each day.
*Too short of shore time at St. Maarten & Nassau.
Debarkation went very smooth & we were even the last to be called. No hassle. Less

Cabin review: 48064
A nice ocean view cabin with plenty of room for storage. Easy to get to elevators & always very quiet. Hardy knew if anyone else was around. Liked the openness between the bed & rest of room. 30 S.F. bigger than inside cabins.
