Sail Date: Mar 2016
Cabin: Ocean View Connected Stateroom with Balcony

The check in process was absolutely terrible. My husband and I were already frustrated after being stuck in traffic for over two hours, and then got to the chaos of this horrible port. So unorganized! We got through security and were told to "have a seat" with about 100 other people. There were about 5 staff members with iPads checking people in and taking pictures. There was no organization whatsoever. The staff looked panicked and the guests were shouting at them to come to their family and check them in. So the staff would leave the line and go start that line, and this process went on and on. Eventually, we had to tell the staff member in our line to finish this and stop leaving to go to some family that was yelling at her. It was a hot mess. Not a great first impression.

Once on-board everything was okay. We went to our cabin and made a list of the things we wanted to do that day. We went to eat at buffet near the Solarium and that was alright, but we were starving so it didn't matter. We then walked around the ship just to see where things were. We had dinner at Silk that night and it was pretty good. We didn't buy the drink package and I was kind of upset that I had to pay for a soda. That just seems like something that should be included in the restaurants. So I stuck with water for the next 3 nights.

We saw Spectra's Cabaret that night and that was so weird. I still don't even know what it was about. Then we went to Michael's Pub and had some beers and hung out there watching the guy playing guitar and singing (he was excellent). There were quite a few extremely drunk people and I couldn't believe the bartender's were still serving them when they could barely stand. But, that's not my problem, right?

It was very clean and pretty spacious. No complaints about the room.
