Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2012
Cabin:

Arrival and check in: As a concierge member, your check-in for the bus to the port is a separate counter with NO lines. Sweet. We were placed on the available bus and left immediately for a 40 minute ride to the port during which they showed a movie about the ship - very informative. Upon arrival at the port, we went through security with everyone else but then went to a separate counter for concierge check-in, avoiding the hundreds of people on line. We were escorted to a separate waiting area with comfortable chairs to wait a few minutes for boarding the ship. As you might expect, as concierge members, we were all the first passengers allowed on the ship.

Getting to our room:

It is quite the fan fare to enter the ship. There are rows of white coated cast members who all clap as you enter the ship. Then we were escorted to our concierge lounge by a cast member. The lounge has three staff who met with each guest with a typed itinerary of our dinners, port excursions, other information and were available the entire cruise for our personal guest services. We never once had to stand on line for any guest information. While we waited for our room to be ready, we were served drinks and small, exquisite snacks (think tuna tartare in martini glasses).

Across from the entrance to the Concierge Lounge so this is super convenient. This level of room has gated access so no kids running the hallway though there are children allowed at this level. They were well supervised and well behaved. The room has one bathroom and a separate door to the shower so two people can get ready at the same time. Closets are adequate and average in size. Plenty of room for two people. Two very small but sufficient end tables with reading lights alongside king size bed. There is a small sofa across from the long counter top which has a swivel TV which works well. The room is AFT so very quiet. Loved it.

Port Reviews

Castaway Cay

This is a magnificent, uninhabited island and is all you could want on an island...swimming, boating, para sailing, food, etc. Beaches are immaculate with plenty of lounges and chairs. You have to carry your towels to/from the ship which I found cumbersome as they get heavy when wet. Would be nice to get towels on the beach and leave them there.

Ship food is brought ashore so you can have lunch easily. Lunch is quite varied from hot dogs, hamburgers to fish, beef, veggies. Of course there is a bar nearby. A tram takes you to the beaches and to Serenity Bay (adults only) so transportation is easy. You walk on/off the ship, as you like. There are shops set up for souvenir shopping (t-shirts, character dolls, etc.). Overall, well done.
