Sail Date: Sep 2017
Cabin: Scenic Ocean View

Embarkation - This was the worst experience of the entire trip. We waited in line for approximately 2 hours in an building that had no air conditioner. It was miserable to say the least. It was not a pleasant start to our vacation. However, the airport (FLL) was very close and we were at the port in less than 10 minutes.

Ship - The ship was overall a fun ship to be on. It was a great first cruise. Of course not knowing what to expect, the ship was huge and we had a lot to explore.

Cabin - We stayed in a Scenic Ocean View cabin and IT WAS FABULOUS! We could open the blinds in the morning and watch the sunrise every morning without having to go outside. That alone made the cabin so worth it! We loved being on Lido deck because of the obvious... close to the pool & the food!

Cabin Review

Scenic Ocean View

Cabin 6J

The cabin view was amazing! We went in between both Hurricane Maria & Irma, so the seas were super rough. Being up so high and at the front of the ship, we did get really sea sick one night. Otherwise, the cabin could not have been more perfect.

Port Reviews

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Embarkation process was terrible. We stood in line for two hours waiting WITH OUR APPOINTMENT. The building was not air conditioned.
