Pictures are absolutely stunning. And I agree about the sign above the drug store....poisons...priceless!

Thanks for the info and pictures on the cove. I have friends who are considering it and if I can, I'll link to your posts so they can see and read about them.

Thanks for the pictures of the other ships as well - my two upcoming cruises are the Disney Magic and the Carnival Dream (your pictures of both brought a smile to my face).
Couple more for you:

Loading up the Magic, the porthole windows and activity kind of call for black & white...

Thanks.
Our cabin was on deck 2, it was very gentle rolling at most. At the top most decks, we still weren't "thrown off our feet". You could feel the rolling more, but the dining rooms seemed plenty busy still.

I don't have a lot of cruises to compare ships motion, but people have said this ship moves more than most - If that is so, the others must have been rock steady. I know the HAL Oosterdam moved a lot more than this one. It had a "lurch" to it, like riding with a teenager with a learners permit in a standard transmission truck for the first time. This thing just seemed to bash through waves without a problem.

We took Meclizine along just in case, never needed it.

Default Loved our Cove

We were on Dream 3 weeks ago in Cove #2345 and absolutely loved it! Great midship location. Very little water on the balcony and we really enjoyed the fantastic views. I brought a bungee cord along and we slept several nights with the door wide open! Yes - there are boats overhead, but they really aren't that close and they didn't bother us at all. Would definately book a cove again!

We used the slide lock to block the door open just enough to get the sound and smell while keeping the room comfy. I so envy anybody that lives on a coast and can enjoy that every night!

We live 2 blocks back from the Atlantic and with this nice winter we have had the windows open for a while now. The ocean during the late winter/spring is almost deafening. Love waking up to it!

It's a good looking ship, makes it easy to take a pretty photo of her.

I'm gonna try this for Miami sailaway and from each port.
