Had a great week with an awesome crew

Sail Date: May 2017
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The crew of the ship really made the week. Every crew member had a smile on their face and a good morning or evening every time. Questions were always answered with a smile. The specialty dining at chops was one of the best steaks I have had in a long time. We used My time dining. We were a group of 8 and found that we were able to get a standing reservation for 5:30 daily at the table we wanted. We chose to stay with our waiter Sandor and his assistant waiter Alajondro because of the excellent service we got day 1.

We had an inside balcony cabin on the 12 level. It was really nice looking out to central park. I also enjoyed listening to the Jazz guitar and trumpet player nightly from my balcony. Most of the shows were really entertaining. The fountain show on our last sea day was neat but started late and seemed out of sync. Our ports were ST. Maartin were we did the TIKI snorkel. The snorkeling was great and was just a shore 10 min boat ride from the Ship. Only complaint More was we found out the Tiki ran hourly shuttles form the ship to the Tiki. I think they should let you come and go other than using a set time. San Juan our time was cut short for some reason. Our initial excursion was cancelled (we were very disappointed) but the trip to Bacardi was very interesting. Wish it was more detailed on showing how the rum is made and blended or maybe they show you how to mix the cocktails.

Labadee was our last stop. You have to ride the dragon's tail. Less

Cabin review: C112207 Central Park View Stateroom with Balcony

the cabin was nice. Our cabin steward was the best. I still had sand on my water shoes. He took the time to clean them without me asking. I planned on putting them in a bag to clean when I got home. Peguia(pronounced peggy) was awesome!

Port and Shore Excursions

we arrived a day before stayed a day after. Just hung out at the hotel.


the zip line was great but for the price i would have liked more than one run.

Bacardi Rum Distillery

tour was short and did not go into great detail on making rum. The gift shop was really nice. Rum drinks were tasty. If they are not going to show the factory in detail they should show you how to mix the cocktails.


the TIKI hut was pretty cool but the site was shared with several activities. you had to deal with divers,snuba and others. The snorkeling was good saw a lot of nice fish
