Sail Date: March 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
One "outstanding,fun" time. Family of 10, Ages 62 to 2. From North Central Florida. Drove down the day before. Stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Penbroke Pines (I-75 AND Sherdain Street). Nice area. Had breakfast with the people from CMT's Party Down South.( not that I,a 62 year old grandma knew who they were but my grandson did.) About a 25 minute drive to port from here. Driving to port was easy. Just follow signs or a Taxi. Port security, have set sail pass and passports out. Follow signs to terminal, drop luggage and then Right into parking lot. Remember it's $105.00 parking, pay when you leave. Short walk to terminal, through security, check-in, pictures and up to sitting area, less then 30 minutes. A 20 minute wait to board. ( Got to port-10:30, walking to ship 11:20. Very easy... We had 3 Forward Hump Balcony, port side staterooms. Deck 14. Wonderful rooms! Great views! Panels were opened so kids could go from room to room without entering hall. Can't say enough about our room More steward, Great guy! Everyone on ship were friendly and very helpful. Ship easy to figure out and if lost always someone to help you. Signs and information at every floor by elevators. Overall food was good. Coffee a bite strong for me. So many places to go to find something to eat. Park Cafe was a favor of ours with their salads and roast beef sandwiches plus all the other great things. I love the pretzel dog from Wipe out cafe. Windjammer was just so,so. Kids enjoyed the hand scooped ice cream. Dining room food was good, service was very slow. Other good things were Johnny Rockets free breakfast and for dinner. Doughnuts on Board walk, the pizza etc. So much food that by the last days we were so stuffed we didn't eat much. Bars and drinks of all kinds, Everywhere. Son's more then got their moneys worth on the $55.00 drink package. There is so much going on all the time one just can't cover it all. The shows were all great. Had a private shore tour with Bernard's Tour at St. Martin. Kon Tiki at St. Thomas. Both great time. All in all a Wonderful time. No complains!! Looking forward to going again. Disembarkation: Early walk off. Went down a little after 6:00am, was walking off at 6:20 and sitting in car at 6:40. Easy,easy,easy....... Less

Cabin review: 14198

This cabin was very nice. If you have ever spend time in a motorhome or travel trailer then this room was plenty roomy. Sofa by closet, bed by sliding doors to balcony. Just remember to keep handle on door down to keep A/C running. Forgot one night and room got warm. There was very little hall noise and very very little noise from over head. There is a large over hang so don't expect much sun. The view, however, was fantastic!!!!!!!!
