Sail Date: Mar 2007

A group of three of us sailed on the March 11th cruise. We are all college aged guys and had an oceanview cabin on Deck 2. I will describe the cruise by day.

Saturday - Boarding was fairly simple. We drove, dropped our luggage off at the terminal, then parked our car in the parking deck. We were onboard by 1:00, bought the soda card, and went to eat in the Windjammer for the afternoon buffet. The muster drill was not bad at all, and took very little time. We quickly rushed back to our room to leave our life jackets and hurried to Deck 10 for the set sail. We were able to watch the ship leave from the front of the boat. We had the 6:00 dinner, so we didn't have much time to watch as we sailed out of New Orleans. All of our luggage was to our room before the muster drill at 4:30. We attended the Welcome Aboard Show that night as well as Family Karaoke in the South Pacific Lounge. I was surprised how long it took us to finally reach the Gulf of Mexico (around 2 AM).

Sunday - The weather was nice so we mostly laid around the pool and on Deck 10. It was fairly crowded, but the back of the ship was a great place to find a chair. We thought our dinner time was too early so we swapped to the 8:30 seating with no problems at all. Lunch at the Windjammer and the Cruise Critic Meet n Mingle filled the afternoon. The Snack Buffet at 3:30 is one of the best kept secrets (also another reason to have the late dinner). That night we saw the All Access show featuring the Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers, who we thought were pretty good. We also attended Karaoke Superstar in the SPL. It was one of the more popular things to do on the ship. The Late Night Comedy with George Cantor was much better than his early show. The Disco Party on Deck 9 was great, as the staff did ABBA and the Village People.
