Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
we have some good things to say about the cruise and some bad things. we were with The Penny Gilly & Maggie Mae Group. It was very good entertainment with her band etc. this was the reason we went on this ship. we read the reviews about this ship and were very skeptical about booking on this vessel. most of the critics reviews were true about this ship. procedures in tendering to Georgetown (too many people) waited for 30 min. on the stairway and the disembarkation was a nightmare. the food was very bland and the steak was tough and the lobster was all black. except for the tail. we were afraid to eat it. the deserts were good and so was the danish pastries, the soups were different but good. the rest of the food was just OK! there was only one midnight buffet they had sandwiches one night and coffee. there was no coffee to be had before lunch after breakfast shut down. the activity were at the pool area most of the time and bingo only played (2) games for $10.00. Our cabin More
sounded like a wind tunnel when the cabin nearby us would open their balcony door. we called the front desk twice for someone to check it out so we could sleep.
the shows were great and the talent show was good.
we would not go on this ship again and our group feels the same way. the bi-lingal language really got to us. we never experienced that on any other ship.
I guess we were considered foreigners. it was hard to find someone to speak English and to understand the crew members.
our room was smaller than we thought and the shower was small. Less

Cabin review: 1212049
Too noisy due to wind in the hallway. great view, shower small, no water or choc. unless you pay for the water. bed was comfortable. not enough tv stations. small bedroom, couch was not turned so you could watch the tv. cabin #12049.
Port and Shore Excursions
Key West was nice. Hogs Breath was a good eating place. we took the tour around the city, hop on & off. 12 stops. Jamaica we had a great tour guide. his name was Georf he toured us around the island and we had a great time. he took us to a seafood rest. and we bought him lunch and gave him a Big Tip. Junto Tour.
Georgetown we toured the island (self) and bought jewelry and rum. We were not aware that they chg. you a foreign fee for using your credit card. also our money is only worth .80 on the dollar.
Cozemel: nice clean island lots of shops and Senior's Frog. loud and crazy but a FUN! place.
weather was cool and seas were rough.
had a good time because of the shows, music, dance and of course Penny Gilly and Maggie Mae and the All Star Band from Branson, Mo.
We will not cruise on this ship Again........our friends have the same thoughts as the rest of us for the same reason and others said there was some rudeness by the crew members.
