Bad Reviews??

Sail Date: December 2009
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
I was on the 12/03 cruise and there were a few glitches.As for the slow service in the dining room,early seating was maxed out and service was slow ,we did not leave until almost 8PM which was when the next seating was to start,but by the end of the trip things were way better and we were done by 715-730 either way it was no big thing to us,this is what made the seating at the shows more crowded everyone was going to the shows at the same time.We never smelled the sewage anywhere so I don't know what they are talking about.

The ship was noisy a lot of creaking at night in the rooms I don't know if this is because it's a new ship and things have to settle,just like a new home.Movement?What movement? Never felt a thing,again I have no idea what the heck these people are talking about,I would not say rude employees,just stressed out,they have to get their routines refined.

Food was fine,although things were crowded at times,seems everyone wanted to eat at noon,like they had More not eaten in weeks,we never had a long wait if you come at off peak times,hey don't forget there are 4000 people on board and if everyone goes at the same time there will be lines.

Pools are small but I never saw many people in them it was never a problem,plenty of whirlpools around and never was unable to hop right in when we wanted to.We did have a power outage for an hour and it was no big deal unless you were stuck in the elevators.It is a new ship and things happen.

So was it a perfect trip,no but it was still great and don't worry you will enjoy it,we are not concerned about going on her again,in fact we are in May. ENJOY Less
