Big Ship Small room
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
I know many people review so i will try not to be reduntant and put my spin on it. We flew in the Wednesday before so we missed irene but felt some of her effects on Thursday I was with my mother (77) and son (16)
Embarkation: very easy on ship by 11:15 had to wait in their waiting area about ten minutes very organized. Highlight for me Secruity officer looking at my passport and saying how much weight I lost and that was before the cruise
When you go on early ship empty gets fuller around 1. ate in Park cafe great roastbeef sandwish and quiet, My mom complained why we did not go to buffet We went to windjammer and I showed her what a mess very crowded and no seats
Room : we has a central park balcony room small for three people especially when couch out. noisy only during day when heard band play from pool, lots of storage We did manage and did not kill each other
Food: i thought the food was good, only ate in windjammer twice for More lunch Mom wanted to try did not like too crowed did not like choices For breakfast solium on 15 deck good healthy food fruit eggs veggires for breakfastdifferent salads fish for lunch Ate at Giovanni's table awesome lots of food but great experience, Chop's Grill also awesome had the petit mignon like butter mudpie best dessert ever. i sugesst you try to go to dining room for breakfast and lunch at least once went to the character breakfast my self thought it was cute chocolate waffels dissapointed soggy with chocolate on them. lunch was good they have a make your own salade which was very fresh. If go to dining room on day of leaving ship get there early after 8 very crowded. Plenty of food all the time you will never go hungry Pizza not so good, Johnny Rockets lots of fun and food after the meal one sundae was enough for the three of us Waiters great we did my time dining but pretty much sat in the same place every night so got to know the staff Venues: Ship set up with main thing s on each side of ship can walk thour deck 4, 5 8 and 15, 16
Boadwalk: okay rode the carosel once
central park nice Ladies wait till Friday to go to coach where they have a sale
Park caffe there and your main paying restaraunt
Pool area- hung out at solariuim pool very crowded first at sea day crowdede then not so bad, main pool areas crowded
Shows only one did not like hairspray oasis of dreams my favorite and also the ice show
At Nassau do NOT go to Atlantis with plans to walk around they do not not let you very limited must pay to see the good stuff guards at every door so do something else
Son liked teen area won a massage doing teen bingo gave it to Grandma thoght that was nice
Mom - went to spa expensive but nice
Me - did gym not too crowded yoga extra machines adequate but like my gym at home better
Crowds- The ship was full and there were times you felt it crowded at elevators after shows pushy at times
They had a sale of wwatch ets for $20 thought they were giving away free money the way people acted very disorganized people were rude and disrespectful stay away plus sets not really worth it
Crowd::Very diverse lots of asians canadians, Spanish , familes couples , looking for love not on this ship too impersonal but met some nice people
We did have richard Spacy as cruise director who I thought overdid it a little but otherwise his staff was good Lots of young people on staff many did go to the quest I guess popular with staff Hightlightfor me meeting the second in command the staff captain the man who really runs the ship and makes the decidsions Met him while getting coffee
Disembarktion we took the excursion to Sawgrass Mills as plane later in pm very organized
overall had a great time awesome ship something people should do once, next cruise probaly radiance class as more doable for Mom Less
