I've read many good and bad reviews...here is my review!

Me: Single guy, 49, 16th cruise I think....sailed and taught ballroom on individual cruises on HAL, NCL, RCL and recently just been sailing solo adding Carnival and Princess to the mix.

Cruise Check In: I arrived at the Port Everglades Pier #2 quickly from the airport at 12:15 pm using GoShuttle. Yes: the busiest time! I got through the security scanning line quickly then into the check in line, but the line came immediately to a complete stop: they stopped boarding the ship. No one knows why. After 15 minutes they resume boarding and the line starts up and I quickly get to the desk...very friendly...very quick. Then to a holding room...they stop boarding again...we sit. Look! They’re boarding again! Sections are called to board, then up an escalator to another line...picture time...to another line! Hmmm... Finally on board 1:20. But still one hour and 5 minutes is not a terrible thing…it’s just gone more smoothly at other ports. I think the terminal just isn’t big enough to handle a ship with so many guests.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BY

Cabin was nicely appointed, shower a bit small. I "LIKE" shampoo and soap dispensers! I'm 5'3" and skinny. If a fat person dropped a bar of soap in the shower they'd be...still dirty. Obstruction was no big deal for the balcony, though I can see some people getting real cranky about the winch noise for the tenders in the morning and being opposite a service door. TV was huge and movie selection great.
