We had a hectic drive from Tampa to Ft. Lauderdale, traffic held up by 2 different accidents on I-75. Were so relieved to find our ship still docked (lol) it was only 2:30.
As Aqua Class and Diamond members we are given priority check in, which we appreciate. That was lost after we received our room card and had to join a long line to have a picture taken for the card. Normally that is done by the person checking you in which does not involve standing in another line. Poor planning there.
Our first time in Aqua Class 2 and were surprised the room was really small. Our balcony was small and being on deck 9 had an overhang which kept it shady, at all times.
Lack of spa quality toiletries was disappointing. The room and balcony were small. Room was quiet except for the cabin above our when walking fast or running could hear each footstep.
Space is adequate for storage but would like to have drawers in desk/dressing table, there are no drawers, just shelves, not convenient for storing makeup.
Ship shows its age in some areas, looks great in others
We thought this would be a food experience, it was a chocolate making event. We were taxied into town and told how chocolate is made from the bean to the candy bar . We then ground the beans and made a chocolate patty which we took back to the ship.
did not tour
