Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2016
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Boardwalk View Stateroom with Balcony

I chose this cruise because we had a group that ranged from 10 years old to 70 years old and it looked like there was something for everyone. We also got a very good deal that had many extra's included as well as some onboard credit. We had two connecting boardwalk balcony rooms. One of the kids and one for us. The Grandparents were about 4 doors down the hallway. We really enjoyed the boardwalk balcony we could see the Aquatheather as well as the ocean out the back of the ship. The entertainment options were great, the specialty dining was lovely. My only reason to not give it 5 stars was that the maytime dining was a pain. There were a few nights where we didn't get our same waiters because of maytime dining. this was disappointing to the kids. Also nearly every night there were LONG LONG lines for getting into the shows or the dining room.

I tried and tried to get a reservation in the dining room for regular seating and was told that MYTime dining was the only thing available and I booked this cruise in Nov for a June sailing. I believe that they only offered this because of all the other extras we got with our package. The service was great, the ports were fun and if it wasn't so far away I'd certainly do it again. But living on the west coast its a bit commitment to take a cruise out of Florida as you have to add a day before and a day after for travel.

Cabin Review

Boardwalk View Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin B1 9711

The cabin was plenty large for two people. I"m sure i'd have felt differently if we didn't have two rooms for the 4 of us. My son is 18 and 6ft 1 and my 10 year old and him fight a lot. We used many of the tricks found here on the message boards such as hooks for the walls to hang our cruise passes on, and the shoe storage space saver for over the bathroom door and felt like we had plenty of room.
