Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
great cruise overall .. the crew the crew make this ship and trip great!!! dinning as you wish turned out we stayed at table 181 lower level and at 6pm because of Yesir our steward .we did dine in Canaletto and again it was Dimas our dinning steward we came to admire for his great personality and the food was excellent.
the activities on board are very good and that was good because there are lots of sea days we went to culinary talks to computer classes to games and more..the night shows are very good, the showroom not so good not many good seats I counted down stair only 499 good seats then your behind and under balcony then upstairs glass surround creates viewing issue, sound not a problem..seating not a problem if you are willing to go very early we tried to but most of the time we settled for upstairs rt front row.our room was 042 tenth floor nav deck .good location nice balcony only one plug so bring a power bar a fan would have been nice on those really hot days the room More air gets behind at times.. only other concern I had was the smoking in the casino (its not very large) and on the seaview pool nav deck I just had to move away from the smoke because I have asthma.. I almost forgot the lido buffet we did eat most breakfast and lunch there. great selection and realy good food never a complaint except too many desserts and all where good.. we had to rate the cruise a 9 because they only but the 9 as the highest I would give all crew a 10+ Less
