Embarkation was very easy arrived in Miami seaport at 11:15 and we were on the boat by 11:40. Went grab a bite at buffet, while quite large I found the layout very confusing and had no type of order where food was we only ended up doing lunches here and we did one dinner since they had a seafood night. For our specialty restaurants we did Cagney's, Teppanyaki and La Cucina. All were excellent. The rest of the nights we tried each of the dining rooms and had great service and really good meals. We reserved Jersey Boys and Havana and saw the Beatles 1st time at Cavern Club the 2nd time they performed in theatre both shows were very good. Only Cons I really found was the pool area, way overcrowded you need to be a early riser because loungers are taken and multiple are taken we saw one man each morning reserve 6 loungers for his family and they wouldn't come until 11 then disappear again and come back at 12 or 1. Also it seems they do not monitor the 1/2 hour rule that they post on screen. The crowd at sea days by the pool is quite busy and they hold a lot of the activities by adult pool so if you want to swim be prepared to use kiddie pool. They also do not watch people laying around pool using e cigarettes we had people in front of us and on side of us a couple of times during the weak using them they were not enforcing them to go smoke in smoking area. Other than not loving the buffet area and the pool we had a great cruise.

Blissful vacation! Just a few observation.

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BD 10884
Nice size room. Found storage ok but only a few hangers. Balcony seemed average size. Seemed quiet area except for storage area outside cabin that we heard steward going in and out of.
