Sail Date: May 2011
Cabin: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Fourth Tran cruise - previous 3 with Celebrity . Flew Glasgow- Newark - Fort Lauderdale and stayed at Sheraton airport Hotel. all fineTook hotel shuttle [$10] to port at 11am as RCI bus going to many hotels. Security that previously was grim were very friendly, smiling and seemed happy at work. Credit to Agency....big change.On ship within 20mins and cabins all ready as ship had been in drydock. Dropped off hand luggage and then to Windjammer for food... one must. Luggage arrived about 3pm and then drill at 4.30 and sail away at 5. If not aware webcam at Everglades and my daughter in Scotland identified us from rear of ship on balcony.Food: Quality and amount has reduced over the years but waiters bring you anything extra you ask for. Went to Chops,,,fantastic as usual.Crown Anchor: 1082 members onboard. did not go to welcome back etc due to numbers. We are Diamond Level so could go to Vortex from 5.30pm - 8pm for free wines and 20% off spirits.Enrichment:CSI phenomenon; Very good, about TV programmes and DNA.Ports: None of them on list below. Really says it all.Ponta Delgada, Azores. I think we had to stop after 7 days at sea. Pleasant enough.Brest: Working docks.Why did we stop here?Cherbourg: Nice French port, nice shops and cafes etc. Escursions available. Overall a pleasant cruise but the cutbacks are becoming obvious. Things that used to be standard are now missing or have to be paid for.Did not go to shows as clashed with Diamond Lounge with free wine.. no choice.
