First Time Was A Charm
Destination: Western Caribbean
Since this was our first cruise we started out slow by taking a interior stateroom catagory 4B. The bed was a king and extremely comfortable sleeping. The interior cabin was nice and dark and I enjoyed that. We were located port side aft. We were on Deck 2 (Main) and found it very quiet. The only complaint I could find during the entire cruise was most everyday around 2:00-3:00pm we could smell fumes that smelled like varnish or paint thinner. As soon as I complained they sent someone down to investigate and sure enough they could smell it More also, so they send someone to the room to "freshen" it up. We came back in about an hour and they had an Ozone Generator in the room and it indeed had removed the smell and we never smelled it again.
Embarkation wasn't bad, we probably completed it in less than a half hour. We carried a 12 pack of Pepsi on board and they opened it to search it.
The food was very good in the dining room. We also ate in the steakhouse one night and we really enjoyed that. The food on the Lido deck was pretty good and you can serve yourself so that was really nice. Less
