First Cruise Experience

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Tampa
Check in and Boarding a COMPLETE JOKE, and they weren't even bothered that I stood outside in Blistering heat for hours, However getting off the ship at the end of the cruise was Fine, just glad I was a US Citizen, Apparently non residents had to be up earlier and I mean early to clear immigration , this is new apparently. all said on that, the cruise was Fantastic enjoyed every single minute so sad to be off the ship, the trips had everything for everybody, loved Roatan,

The Food was good with Plenty of Choice, I am sorry for those guests who couldn't find much at the Garden Café, What happened did you close your eyes or something, everyone was catered for, I made a point of looking at the buffet first before making a decision , salad bar, hot section, cold section, puddings, ice cream , tea and coffee and soft drinks all available, Breakfast was just as interesting and plenty of choice, Just thought, if you couldn't find anything to eat here then maybe you was too More late arriving at the buffet. we also ate in the Venetian which was excellent and again a good choice, our waiter was on hand all time when not serving, with over 2300 passengers on board its gonna be busy, you aint gonna miss anything your at sea, we never felt rushed at all and enjoyed our visits, Only lesser service was in the Blue lagoon the 24hr café , got the feelin they couldn't be bothered, heyho.

Entertainment was good and the stardust theatre was great, onboard shopping was ok but Lynda Please no more how many times did we here Diamonds International,

onto our cabin, it was small but functional and had a window which was great, you only need it to sleep in anyway so what does it matter, our steward was very nice and made some lovely towel sculptures.

The only sad tale is there is far to much sell sell sell going on, from boarding to getting off jeeeeezzz leave me alone, every single day buy this now cos on your way back, it will be gone. even on the last day they tried selling me another cruise. My Travel Agent sells me the cruise not you Less
