Sailing from Baltimore was great. Only 5 hours away from our home in Ohio. We left a day early and spent the night at LaQuinta in Glen Burnie. Nice hotel but shuttle service leaves a lot to be desired.
So easy to get onboard, only had to wait about 1/2 hour, we were onboard before noon, enjoyed lunch at the Windjammer. At 1:30, we went to our cabin and found our luggage waiting for us. Nice comfortable room, bed was great and so was the storage. The only bad thing about the room was the tiny tv but hey, we didn't cruise to watch tv.
We were set for late dinner but were able to make the switch to main seating by the second day. Food was good, not great but good. Service was wonderful, staff and entertainment were great.
We learned not to walk through the smokey casino but to enjoy walking outside on the deck.
Also beware of the photographers, they are everywhere. They were annoying and took up a lot of space in the Centrium on they way to the Diningroom. This space would have been nice for more seating. Also, they made it hard to get on or off the ship in port, either trying to take your picture disembarking OR blocking the entrance when trying to board. I think there should be a NO PHOTOS button for passengers to wear so they will leave you alone!
Ports of call were Cape Canaveral, we enjoyed staying onboard and I had several great spa treatments. Next was Key West, we went on a self-guided shopping tour and had the BEST key lime pie at Kermits. Nassau we shopped and took a boat ride to Blackbeard's Cay - not the nicest beach - very rocky and food is overpriced. Coca Cay was the best stop - we took the glass bottom boat tour - best EVER. Great ride and learned so much.
Disembarking in Baltimore was quick and painless. However, do NOT rely on LaQuinta shuttle, we were the last of 2300 passengers to be picked up. 7 phone calls and two hours later we finally were on our way home. This was the only problem with the whole trip. Definitely a bargain and a good time.
