Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin:

We picked this trip for the itinerary. With 25+ cruises under our belt we never cruised a mega ship. Never again. Lines, lines and more lines. Waited one hour for a show at Syd Norman's. Never got in because it was too crowded.Miami port was a disaster. Mob action mentality. Took 2 hours to have lunch. And even in New Orleans, our luggage was piled all together without any rows to access it. Taxi line was over 2 hours long. Ship is illogically laid out...one bar is placed between 2 dining rooms with not enough space for people to pass. Million Dollar Quartet, hypnotist, Cirque show were fantastic. Public bathrooms flushed when I walked in, flushed when I stood up and then flushed when I left. No water saving there. Soap dispensers were also automatic but didn't work half the time which is probably why half the ship was sick! Ship needs new management and a logistic expert to fix.

Port Reviews

Copenhagen

Took a food tour, Guided walking food tour in Copenhagen. Very good.

Rotterdam

Walked around the food hall, saw the Cube homes, visited the farmer's market. Bus back was a long line so we walked back.

King's Wharf

Pharmacy was overrun with sick people!

Miami

Unorganized while we waited 5 hours to get back on ship.

Cobh (Cork)

Walked on our own and then met with a prearranged guide for a walking tour. Man was excellent. Very quaint harbor town. Loved the Titanic Experience.
