First cruise after it being refurbished.
We chose this cruise because of its itinerary and it being 9 days. The renovations to the ship are very nice. Unfortunately some were not complete so, therefore, we didn’t get the full benefit. If I would of had children along I would have been disappointed because one of the slides was not operational yet and the children’s play areas were not complete. For 70 year olds that didn’t care about those things it was great. Food, service and entertainment were all excellent. We were traveling with a group of 12 and everyone had a great time.
Small complaint was the first couple of nights were slow in the main dining room but it got better as the week went on. Also, the only movies offered in the cabin you had to pay for. There should be at least one or two movies a day you don’t have to pay for. About the only TV was MSNBC and Fox News. I know you are not on a cruise to watch TV but sometimes you like a little quiet time away from the crowds and music. They showed movies out on the pool deck but you couldn’t hear and who wants to sit in the hot sun to watch a movie.
We did feel that the ship felt a little crowded. I don’t know if it was because some venues were not open yet and everyone was pushed into the areas that were but at times it was crowded.
Cabin was noisey. We overlooked the promenade and there was always music playing which made our cabin noisey. We have had promenade cabins on the Freedom and never had a problem with noise.
Miami is a very busy port. Would much prefer going no out of Ft. Lauderdale but being an experienced traveler I just go with the flow and know getting on and off the ship will be a little crazy.
Sail and Snorkel Catameran. Very nice water was a little cool but saw lots of fish and enjoyed the sail.View All 185 Snorkeling Reviews
