Cruising. The way to go.
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
This was our 10th cruise. All with Royal Carribbean. Joined the Crown & Anchor Society 1st Cruise. Was one of the best moves we have made. Credits asre given for each cruise you take. The more you cruise, the better the benefits. When we arrived, there was a lenghty line to get inside the terminal. As a Diamond Member, were were able to use the Priority Boarding entrance and the Priority line once inside the terminal. There were at least 50 people in line, which we avoided.
Went to the Windjammer for lunch when we boarded. No crowd, and the food hit the spot. When we got to our cabin, it was a little bit befor our luggage arrived. But with this being such a large ship, that is understandable.
Dinner was at 6:00. As Diamond members, we went to the Diamond lounge each day before dinner for drinks and snacks. Dinner was good. Staff did a great job of catering to everyone.
There are so many activities, you will be tired if you want to participate in a lot More of them. You have to plan your activities. Royal Carribbean does a great job of scheduling activities. There is something for everyone.
On these large ships, pool deck can be really crowded. If you are not there early, you may not get a good spot.
Enjoyed the jogging track and gym. Worked out every morning.
St. Marteen was a bummer because it rained all day, so we didn't leave the ship. There were more than enough activities on board to keep busy, or you could find a good spot and just relax.
Cabin (Junior Suite) was nice. Location (Mid Ship) was convenient to Windjammer and other key areas on each floor.
Great Ship. Cruising again in January 2012 on this ship. Less
