- Sail Date: March 2012

Dinner: Go to Kelly's Landing( around the corner from Ross) yummy food, great little place. We ordered Lobstah rangoons, Lobstah roll(warm with butter) mmmmm....
Get the Boston cream pie for dessert, it won't disappoint!
If you are staying at Hilton Marina, take Taxi/shared van to Port Everglades
Since it was just 2 of us we had to take a Taxi, it was about $15. We left Hotel room at 11am and boy was it a circus! My advice, Leave earlier.....After waiting for a Taxi and Pier traffic we made it to our Pier at 11:45am. Line was pretty long but moved quickly once they opened the main doors. Got onboard a little before 1pm when our rooms were available. We had interior cabin at the back of the ship, great price but it really was the back back of the ship. Cozy room but we really felt the ship move back there.
I won't be staying in the back again, plus the crew door was adjacent to ours and it squeaked everytime it was opened. It needed WD-40 bad....
We dropped off carry-ons and headed up to Windjammer like everyone else.
Food in the Windjammer is buffet and it tastes like buffet food. They did have one day where they had pork ribs and they were really good!! Breakfast and Dinner was amazing in the main dining room. My husband and I were in the Nutcracker dining room, which is the main dining floor, second seating (8:30pm). Service was excellent and I really miss our waiters Isaias and Simon. Shows were eh. The adult comedian was funny and the Love and Marriage game was fun to watch. We went to the iceskating show and 3 singing/dancing productions but left during one of them... It's just not our thing. I would've rather seen an Improv show or more comedic performances. The theatre wasn't even half full the nights we went. Deck chairs are an issue, as well as towels. Bring your own beach towel because they ran out many times and on the port days too, so we had to take our room towels off the ship. We went during spring break so there were a lot of college people wanting to bake in the sun all day. People left their stuff on them or a towel but who knows if they ever came back to those "saved chairs". Rude people that go on cruises are rude cruise people, they don't magically become nice just because so if you see a chair without personal items or towels, take it! Don't think about it, just do it.... or you will most likely never get a chair. Oh, and by the way, I'm a nice person on and off the ship :)
Although my husband and I had an amazing time it does feel like Royal Caribbean is feeling the economic situation like a lot of people are. You can feel it around the ship, not all the time but it is noticeable.... Now, after making that comment, I am still going to cruise with them, in fact I just booked another cruise this afternoon.

LabadeeLabadee is beautiful. It is also very apparent that the people who work on the compound, that's what it is.... don't like americans. It's very hard to enjoy your BBQ lunch when you can see through it all....View All 1,453 Labadee Cruise Port Reviews

San JuanSan Juan was a waste I think because the stop is so short and it's not that exciting. I would've enjoyed another day at sea or a stop at another island.View All 3,092 San Juan Cruise Port Reviews
