Ship – Immaculate! Found the ship easy to navigate and despite what appeared to be a full ship always found a quiet place to sit, relax and enjoy. We found the staff to be friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed the casino – appeared larger than previous cruise lines I’ve traveled on. On sea days spent most our time lounging and relaxing in the Solarium using the pool and the whirl pools. As we eat dinner late, we often had this area to ourselves after 5-6 PM. While we didn’t have a drink package, I found the drinks we did order to be reasonably priced and well prepared. I truly enjoyed the happy hour offered twice daily (early evening & late evening) at the Sky Observation Lounge and the Passport Bar. On the subject of food - found the Ocean View Café and Grand Cuvee Restaurant meals to be well presented and prepared. I’d have to agree with other reviewers who had mentioned the poor traffic flow in the Ocean View Café. In spite of this, never had a problem getting what I wanted in a timely manner. I truly enjoyed the pizza, pasta and ice cream sections of the buffet. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the wonderful wait staff we had in the Grand Cuvee – a very special shout out to Ryan and Milan! With regard to entertainment, found the shows to be well done and the theater comfortable. We really enjoyed the comedians, dancing with the stripes and the liars club. Found the captain to be personable and funny.
With regard to ports, found them easy to navigate and tours to be reasonably priced for the value. In short, got to swim with dolphins, kiss a stingray, walk up falls, and relax on a beautiful beach – absolutely amazing and no complaints (other than I wish I could be there right now).
Cabin Number 6145 – Nestlin our room attendant was amazing. We found the cabin to be clean, comfortable and well appointed. Room had a balcony with a partially obstructed view. The support or winch for the lifeboat obstructed the left side of the balcony when seated. When standing or seated on the right side of balcony the view was great. We sat outside quite a bit and never found the obstruction to be a problem. The room was well laid out with plenty of storage. We liked the rounded corners at the end of the mattress, as it made movement about the room easier. I really enjoyed the television and having to access to several genres of music. I loved the glass shower stall! Finally I could take a shower without constantly peeling the shower curtain off my back.
