We traveled to Miami the day before as we had missed one cruise because of flight delay. We were at ship at 11:45 AM. Slight wait because of wedding party. Don't know why they are put ahead of others. Embarkation was about 30 minutes.
Went to Windjammer for lunch. By the time we were ate , room was ready. We had deck 8 with balcony, Luggage came by 3 PM.
We had requested first dining and seating for 2. We had seating for 10.We went one time and 2 couples came 30 minutes late and we had to wait for our main meal for them. Never went back.
This is a fantastic ship. Beautiful decor , and lots of class.
Entertainment: Great: we had Marty Allen and his wife: unreal: Over all I would give a 9.5
Food: As I didn't eat in dining room, I would give 7.5.\
Explorations. Great; we did Sunset Cruise in Aruba: Great, lots of booze, great scenery. Eco walk and Charges River cruise, Panama,? so so., Bus, Boat, train, in Puerta Limon, Costa Rica. 12 on a scale of 10. Grand Caymans " Seven Miles beach, about an 8.
Values. Puerta Limon, Costa Rica. Buy all you can, T shirt 4-5 dollars. Great quality , same shirt in Grand Caymans 20-to 25 dolars.
I would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone.
I have no negatives: well maybe the ones that think they are so special, like I want to be in front so I can hear, like no one else does.
