Liberty is what we chose!
Destination: Western Caribbean
We had stayed the night before at the Embassy Suites and they brought us to the port for $10 per person.
Embarkation went smoothly, got to the port at about noon and were on the ship and in the Windjammer by 1 p.m. Our cabin on deck 6 looking out onto the promenade was just about in the middle. Felt the room was big enough for the 2 of us and had ample room for our clothes in the drawers and closets. Our cabin attendant kept the room very clean and well supplied with towels and toiletries. He was friendly, polite and made great "towel animals".
Thought the food in the Windjammer was very good at both breakfast & lunch. A good variety at both meals. Waiters at breakfast were very eager to serve you the coffee and juice, something I haven't seen happening on our last cruises. More
Dinner at the late seating (8:30) was also very good. A smaller selection of items to choose from, but the good quality and taste was excellent. We did eat one evening in Chops and neither of us thought that this was worth the extra $25 per person. I chose the strip steak and found it rather tough without much taste. My husband had the filet and although tender, he didn't find it had much taste either. I had a strip steak in the regular dining room on the final night that was one of the selections of the day and this was definitely tastier and more tender.
The one thing we felt didn't work well was instead of having a midnight buffet with carved fruits, ice sculptures, etc., they instead had this at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. along the promenade. It was much too crowded along this area, many people just trying to walk through had to wait while people stopped to take pictures and choose food. Much better to have this in the dining room as in the past.
We thought the shows were good--the ice skating show was excellent! The skaters were very talented. Costumes for all the shows were very nice--colorful and very attractive.
On one day at sea, we were lounging on deck chairs for most of the day. The waiters came by offering drinks but not so often that it was "too much".
We didn't do any of the ship's shore excursions--we set off on our own. Less
Cabin review: PR6591 Promenade Stateroom
Good sized closet, enough drawer space and shelves to put clothes. Bathroom closet had 3 shelves for toiletries. Bed was comfortable, a little narrow passageway to get around the bed to go to the other side. Nice little couch to sit on right at the window so you can look out at the promenade. Our room was just about mid-ship--good location, not noisy. (Just be aware that all of these promenade staterooms do hear the activites (parades, music) that is playing down below. But, it ends by about 11-11:30 and then there is no more noise. Unless you want to go to sleep at 9:00, don't worry about the noise.Read All Promenade Stateroom (PR) Reviews >>
