- Sail Date: September 2012
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Central Park View Stateroom with Balcony
We were able to play trivia in the Schooner Bar and go to Muster before our luggage arrived. We did not have life jackets in our cabins, they were located at the Muster Stations. The luggage did take a little longer than usual to get to our cabin. We had early dinner at 6PM in the Opus Dining Room. The food was very good. They had introduced a new menu the week before; it was very different , but quite good. We had reservations for "Hairspray" that evening and really enjoyed it. We booked all the shows on line before we got on the ship. We enjoyed all of them, The Aqua Show, the Iceskating and the other shows in the Opal Theater.
I was impressed with the "Small Wonders" on the ship. These are Artworks scattered about on many of the decks . There are pedestals with a lens on top showing pretty shells or flowers or a snake vertibrae. There are stands with binoculars displaying 3D pictures of roads, flowers, a levitating man, owl, trees, etc. The one with the monkey is on Deck 6 near the Boardwalk entrance. There are supposedly 42 of them. It was fun trying to find them. We did have dinner in Giovanni's on the last evening because it was part of our package. It was good , but I would not pay extra for it. We enjoyed the trivia games. We won pens, highlighters. luggage tags, etc. Walking in Central Park was very enjoyable. A lot of the plants are identified.
Having a balcony overlooking Central Park was great because you could listen to the music while sitting on the balcony or you could shut the doors and eliminate any noise. If you are Diamond or more, they had a nightly happy hour in Blaze (the Disco) from 5-8:30PM . Met a lot of nice people there. Disembarkation
was fairly easy because we took off our own luggage and got a taxi to the airport. I would definitely recommend it. It's a one of a kind cruise!

NassauWe got on the shuttle to get off the pier. The driver told us that we could get a water taxi or a regular taxi to Atlantis for $4 each, the best Casino and resort on Paradise Island. We made a mistake and took the water taxi. It let us off at a pier very far from Atlantis. We took a regular cab on the way back.View All 5,278 Nassau Cruise Port Reviews

St. MaartenWe were about 7 miles from town. They did have a few shops and you could pick up a free bracelet from Diamonds International. The ship is so big that they had to build a pier for them.View All 4,132 St. Maarten Cruise Port Reviews
