Overall Member Rating
Great holiday cruise!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
This was our 5th cruise and probably one of the best. All of us had fun, including my 14 year old son and my 70 year old mother!
My son did not really enjoy the teen club itself, but met lots of teens to hang out with all day and night.
The food was average but we really don't go on cruises to eat. We just enjoy not doing the dishes!
The service was very good. The wait staff, bar staff, and cabin stewards were efficient and pleasant.
We did not take any shore excursions but chose to take taxi tours. We did purchase the Jolly Pirates 4 hour sail, snorkel, swim and swing cruise online for Aruba. It included lunch and unlimited drinks(including rum punch). It cost $98 for all four of us.
The cabin was small but adequate--who stays in the room anyway? The ship was very clean. The cruise was full but never seemed crowded except Christmas with Santa and New Year's Eve which is supposed to be a party.
Embarkation was a breeze. Walked More straight onto the ship at 12:30 and had lunch. Overall, a great holiday! Less
