Holiday Review 9/28 With Lili On Our Tail!(LONG)
We drove to Nashville on Friday.I was chosen to be a "special person" and got the scan front side,scan broader side,sit in chair and scan again,send sneakers thru scanner and scanned bottom of my feet.(I have BIG feet so hubby said they looked at my feet and decided NO woman could have feet that big so there had to be something else in those shoes)But they smiled and were very nice about it!Of course, hubby turned his back and pretended he didn't know me.
We checkd into our hotel room(Hilton Garden Inn).We freshend up a few minutes and then we went to a little place in the French Quarter for dinner.We called a night early to get ready for embarkation the next day.
We got to the terminal a little after 11:00 AM and I was surprised at the number of people already there.The lines seemed a little long but things went fairly fast.Hint:With all of the shuffling of papers and documents from line to line, don't take more than ONE carry on!So why didn't someone warn me about that??Geez we were the only ones in line with 3 carry ons.We had to show our ID about 4 times to get on the ship including once after we had already gotten on and of course I had already put everything away.We got on board about 12:30 pm.?First problem I had was someone didn't leave the safe open and I like to have never got some one to come open it.(Leave that dang safe open when you leave).
Room Steward was a big disappointment the first day.He never smiled or had a good attitude. After that we got really good service but the attitude never changed.Never even came around on the last day to receive his tip so I had to leave it in the room.
I will try to break this down to various areas as we tried out just about everything on this ship except for the internet services which was just too expensive.
Casino-I lost $6.00 in 3 minutes and that was nickels.Nuff said!
Ports Only got to stop at Cozumel as Hurricane "Lili" was on our tail so we did not get to stop in Playa Del Carmen.
Casual Lido Wharf Restaurant
Lounges and Clubs-Lots of stuff going on here but the action was at the Tahiti Lounge.There is a man and wife team that sings country music after 9:00 pm and they are very good!Karoke also in here.Doc Holidays Lounge was ok but I don't think that band was any where near as good as the couple in Tahiti Lounge.It was also too HOT in there!
