I chose this cruise because CCl gave me a great deal.It was the 2nd cruise from fl. by CCL since the sutdown.I have been on about 50 cruises,mostly with CCL& the purpose of this review is not tradional,but rather to compare pre&post covid cruises.I can not comment on embarkation procedures be cause of airline delays(jet blue)I got on the ship at the last minute.I provided I do not I I my required proof of vax & boarded with 2700 other passengers on the 5000 max capacity ship.A few passengers were wearing masks&I am not sure if this was cautionary or due to lack of proof of vax.Buffets seemed normal with extradinary clean up in the eating as well as the rest of the ship.I did not take any tours because I had been to most of the islands before.CCL has eliminated paper,such as menues&daily activities in order to get you to buy the wi-fi pkg.Some passengers do NOT have smart phones&many do not wish to carry them all day.This is done under the pretense of covid prevention,but reality is that it is to save money for CCL.Probably the most frequently handled item on the ship by multiple people is the casino chips .HOW OFTEN ARE THEY SANITIZED,if ever.Service was fine in all areas throughout the ship&I hope they increase employees as they increase capacity.De-barkation was smooth.I will hesitate to book another cruise from fl. until they get the covid protocol staightened out.
