1. What was the shows (Vegas Style) that were on while you were aboard?
Each night there was a Vegas Style show, comedian or magic show..the triumph dancers kicked ass..as well as their Director, Ryan..
2. Which nights are the formal Nights?
it was named Elegant night..some wore suits and dress s..other less formal
but were neatly dressed..did nt see any tux s..second night was the first..
here they did serve up a small lobster w/tiger shrimp..everyone at the table order d a second..the other Elegant night was towards the end of the week, Friday i believe
3. Movies they showed on the big screen (by the pool???)
There certainly were movies on the wide screen..however, the wiife and i
caught up on the many pay-per-views in the cabin..
by the middle the week i knew i left out something..i should have taken pictures of the FOOD..
dumb me..it would have been better of me to have gotten pictures of the dish s they served
each night..along with the menu s..and of course, the daily capers.
it s all hind sight now and i ll learn from this..

second or 3 page of the CCL forum is my review..i tried to cover as much as i could..it s also in the Ship Review section as well..
the first group of pictures were all from our hotel room at the Holiday Inn..
a nice precruise activity are the tour s offered thru the hotel..as you can see we did the Everglades tour..
i had 4 Starbuck s gift cards from Christmas and we spent alot of time
at the Bayside Starbucks..had dinner the first night at Bubba Gumps
..and the Knife the night befor the cruise..
other s will differ..but, we really enjoyed Bayside..each night were bands..
a real rocking place..lots of shop s if your looking for gifts to take
back home..DON T SPEND ALL YOUR MONEY HERE..like us..
they did nt have a Wells Fargo Bank..and the wife left the ATM card at home....nearly $400 gone in 2 nights..it was nt till we boarded the Triumph that we were able to more cash for all the shopping at the ports of call..
Your slideshow was so well done. We did almost the same cruise, the week before out of Galveston, sailing on the Conquest. You docked in Ochos Rios and we were in MoBay. I like the looks of OR better. Thanks for sharing.
we did nt really need to take a tour while in Grand Cayman..
the main shopping area and Margaritaville is right across the
street from the pier..we could easily have spent the day there..
Margaritaville is upstairs..and though there s no beach front, there
is a pool to enjoy if it was hot..as it was, it was overcast most
of the day..
though there were moments in Ocho Rios..we never felt uncomfortable
in Grand Cayman or Cozumel..

Love the pics! My husband and I are going on the same boat and same islands in April. It's nice to see a first hand perspective from a past cruiser. Just under 60 days to go and I can't wait, your pictures make it even harder. Thanks for posting them for all to see. It looks like yall really had fun!
Hell is nt walking distance from the pier area..if you do want to see it
it s best to see it along with another tour..the only thing there is
that lime stone garden and a little shop..we took the Turtle Tour which
the ship s do not dock in George Town..they tender to the pier area..
