Sail Date: Mar 2011
Cabin: Promenade Stateroom

We arrived by Southwest Airlines into Ft Lauderdale, caught the GO shuttle to Miami. Very easy to do! $20.00pp, 45 min & It dropped us off right in front of the terminal. Embarkation wasn't as much of a hassle as it had been in other ports, unless you are cruising on Carnival Liberty & you are holding up the security line because you are in the wrong terminal :}. That was all we had to wait on until we got to the front of the line. Our agent seemed a little new, as he was taking a bit longer to process us on & we had our paperwork done. Oh well, we got on. The ship was beautiful! Really loved the touch screens near the elevators. Made it so easy that you didn't have to carry a cruise compass with you.

Dining Room:

Hmmm. Average is all I can say. Nothing stood out. Service was adequate. We had main seating. Took almost 1 hour each night to get appetizers. On the 4Th night, it took 1 15 min for salads. We finally got our main meal & it was wrong. Steak was cold. We left without eating main course & didn't go back. We opted for the Windjammer the next night. It wasn't fancy, but we got a selection & didn't have to wait.

Cabin Review

Promenade Stateroom

Cabin PR

Room:

We have always had a balcony room on other cruises, never anything smaller. We opted for a Promenade stateroom this time as our friends we were cruising with had a JS, so we could visit them. We chose the PR from seeing it on cabin crawl in November on the Voyager. (Cabin crawl is an awesome way to see other stateroom categories). We had adequate room. Closet was same as we had in our balcony room prior. The main difference was the bed. It allowed a smaller walking space in the room since the end was only 12 inches from the wall. We really liked the window looking out. It had 2 small seating couches & a chair at the desk. We had plenty of room for 8 days for the 2 of us. The bathroom seemed about the same size. The only drawback we had was where they place the light switch to the bathroom. It is behind the door. The door opens to the room, so if you turn the light on & open the door, it will light up the room & wake everyone up. The room is very dark, so bring a small flashlight to avoid this.

We didn't notice any noise that bothered us. You could barely hear any from the promenade. Good location as we were above Guest Services, so noise was minimal.
