Fun Ship.....Too Big

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Great ship. Excellent service. Lots to see and do. But.....over 6000 passengers made it hard to get to know anyone. Met a lot of people but couldn't remember all the names! HAIRSPRAY was just ok, not anything worth waiting in line for more than a few minutes. The diving show at the Aqua Theater was phenomenal! well worth the wait!! The food was good, I would stay away from the upgraded restaurant with the attached fees, especially Johnny Rockets. Not worth the additional fee. Drinks were expensive, as you would expect. The crew was excellent, took care of everything for you including closing one of the swimming pools after some loudmouth complained about young kids using it as a toilet.

Too many rude Spanish and Japanese people on board. The push and shove their way all over the ship when they are not standing in the middle of a staircase taking photos of the carpeting or handrails. It would have been nice to speak English with more of the passengers.

Nassau, St More Thomas, and Saint Maartin are good examples of why the economy is in the dumper. Lots of tourist money coming in and most of the Island residents just spend it on dope and booze. The only Island residents that seem to work are the ones that hound you at every street. Better to stay on the ship and buy some time on the internet.

For everyone who insisted on having their picture taken with "Le General" on formal nights, you may as well know now that he is just another passenger. Less

Cabin review:

Great ship, well planned and plenty of things to do and places to go. Just needs more upscale passengers.
