Our 2nd cruise on RCLEmbarkation  - was a breeze - walked right up to the counter checked in, was on the ship within 20 minutes, went up to the Windjammer had lunch. We were in our cabin by 1 PM. Checked out the ship, then had our muster, which was kind of confusing. no one checked us in so we had to make sure afterwards they had marked us off the list. Dining - We chose the Murder Mystery dinner at Portofino. It started in Ellingtons bar with champagne & hoerdovers, then after the "murder" we moved to Portofino's where the mystery continued. It was great fun, met real nice people, and the meal was delicious. Ate in he main dining room the rest of the nights. Head waiter was awful. Didn't do a thing or even speak to us most nights. Assistant waiter seemed confused most nights with our drink orders. Food was pretty good. Windjammer was just okay. We ate most breakfasts in the main dining room too. Johnny Rockets was fun, but thought paying for shakes & drinks was ridiculous. We had a coupon, so didn't have to pay the $4.95 each cover charge.Activities - Lots of activities, I attended 4 craft classes, which were fun. bingo, keyboard classes, drum classes. Abe was a great activity director.Cabin - We had an inside promenade room. It was great, could watch the parades & dances etc form our window, although most of the time we were down their participating. Our room attendant Viniod was fantastic! He helped us with a couple of issues promptly 7 with a smile. We had great towel animals everynight. We did miss the chocolates on our pillows though. Guess RCL can't afford them anymore LOL!Ports - Not too interested in any of the ports, just walked around. The Shrimp Factory in mazatlan was GREAT!  Swam with the dolphins in Puerto Vallarta and that was fantastic.

LOADS OF FUN
