Destination: Eastern Caribbean
On the other hand, the kids areas are large, the pool while not conducive to swimming per se has lots of water More features and two great water slides plus a 1 foot kiddie pool. There is an entire deck for kids with lots of activities, and macaroni and cheese is always available in the Garden Cafe. The food in general is good to excellent, of note is Cagney's , which is worth the cover charge. Cirque du Soleil, Blue Man Group, the Murder Mystery, Second City and Howl at the Moon did not disappoint. The Jazz Group was mediocre, but the Jazz Club has nice posters, and there are some nice pieces of art on the ship. Service was excellent throughout.
In port, we docked at the pier, eliminating the need for time consuming tendering.
The Thermal area in the spa was excellent with unisex steam area two dry saunas, multiple whirlpools, heated tile lounges,nice outdoor lounges, plus smaller dry and steam areas in the men's and women's dressing areas. Worth the $100 weekly pass. Massage and facial services were excellent, however they did have the inevitable pitch for $300 worth of products afterward, which I understand, nevertheless it cheapens the experience.
Not having children, I would not sail this ship again. The poor traffic flow, lack of public space, hideous cabin layout, and macabre library were not outweighed by the other amenities nor the helpfulness of the staff. Less
Cabin review: B111316 Aft-Facing Balcony
#11316--aft cabin overlooking stern. Poor layout-supposedly for three persons but two only comfortable because we are good friends. Larger than average balcony. Not a problem for us, but long walk (obviously) from fore of ship. Sink splashes, shower steps out in back of door, translucent barrier around toilet not suitable for two strangers.Read All Aft-Facing Balcony (B1) Reviews >>
