We stayed in Room E159 on the Empress deck. Every time we left the room,it was clean when we came back. Matt69 really nailed everything in his review. He was part of our roll call, and I never had the opportunity to meet him even though his room was down the hall from ours.
My only complaint is the Charleston Port. There are a number of ramps that you have to climb to get on the ship. There is also quite a bit of chaos when you get off the ship and have to traverse the ramps on the way down and go into a warehouse to find your luggage. Remember the location Code! It could be quite taxing if you are not in great shape or carry on a number of bags/booze.
We did the Park and Cruise at the Sleep Inn in Mt. Pleasant. Rooms were clean and it was a convenient location. You do have to find your own shuttle to the port.We used Most Wanted Transportation to shuttle us to the Cruise port. They were very reliable and professional. It costs $15 each way and I highly recommend them.
Fantasy is absolutely confusing. You can't get there from here. You have to go up stairs to go from Jubilee to Celebration, and then down the stairs again to the same floor at the opposite side of the ship.
Cattle Call outside of Jubilee waiting for it to open. Maybe let people wait in Forum and/or Majestic Bar rather in hallway and up and down stairs.
Also, not enough seating in Lido Dining Hall. Maybe publicize Celebrations open dining more for Breakfast and Lunch. People may be not aware that dress is more casual for those meals.

FreeportWe enjoyed out time in Freeport. Taxis are well organized and reasonable on the trip to Our Lucaya Marketplace.View All 1,232 Freeport Cruise Port Reviews

Atlantis AquariumReally interesting. Also, the cost was $56 which includes round trip shuttle to Ship. The day pass at Atlantis is $40 and $10 round trip fro taxi, so well worth the cost. Tour Guide was OK, hard to understand at times. BUT - I would recommend this tour.View All 98 Atlantis Aquarium Reviews
