Cabin: Ocean View

Well we started off at the Port Canaveral Cruise port. It was very organized and well done. We were on the boat by 11. We had lunch on the lido deck as our room was not ready yet. Our room was ready and decorated with Anniversay get up thanks to my awesome hubby of 17 years.( he did good, I was suprised!) Anywho, our room was plenty sufficient size wise for 2. We had a king bed with ocean view. Room m38. It is a fairly good location, quite a stroll to the back of the boat.

Food--Mediocre at best. This was not the food I have become accustomed to while cruising. We have only been on two other cruies (both Disney with kids). Our food on the lido deck was okay, scale of 1-10 maybe a 6. The dining room was not so much..Scale of 1-10, maybe a 4 on a good night. It was cold, we waited a long time for it and was quite frustrated by the time we got it. That being said, our dinner mates were funny and fantastic.

The entertainment was great in the comedy lounge, we only went to the adult one. They were hilarious and on point. I laughed until my gut hurt. The Casino was so smokey we did not stay much. However, the live band at the bar was really good each night.

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

We stayed at the Raddison at the Port and used the shuttle. It was great. The port was very well organized and flowed well.
