We drove to Port Canaveral and stayed at The Country Inn and Suites for their Stay and Cruise package. The room was clean and the bed extremely comfortable. Embarkation in Port Canaveral was very easy. Our shuttle dropped us at the curb and porters were there to greet us and take checked luggage. I need to add that when we received our luggage on board it looked like it had been dragged around the parking lot a few times. It was dirty and scuffed, with the fabric abraded, and two of the bottom feet were broken.

Entering the terminal was a breeze. Have your passports open to your picture and a copy of your ticket in hand. Then you enter the door and put your belongings on the conveyor belt and step through a metal detector. Your passports and ticket are scanned, your picture taken for security, and your credit card run. There was no line to take the Embarkation photo which was in front of a green screen. They apparently photo-shop the ship behind you. The Sun will remain on the old style system where you have to search for your picture on the wall. They will hold them in a folder behind the desk once you locate them. They did not offer a disk with all photos for one set price as other ships do.

Both MDRs were open for lunch, as was the buffet. We ate at the Four Seasons and had New York Strips which were very good. Food, of course, is subjective and will also depend on who is cooking at the moment. As far as the buffet, we never ate lunch or dinner there but did eat Muesli there for breakfast a couple of times. The buffet did not serve Eggs Benedict so we ate a few breakfasts in the MDR. I had heard that there was a breakfast pizza available in Modernos on the Sun but the crew had never heard of that item. Crepes were fantastic in the buffet and we had one every evening. People rave about the cold soups on the buffets but we never saw them. I am obviously blind and missing something here, lol!

Cabin Review


Cabin BD

Very tiny bathroom. Great location right next to the more expensive midship category. Deck nine has cabins above and below so no noise.
