The entertainment was also better than we expected. Rock 'n Roll Dueling Pianos was fun, The Rosario Strings whom performed in the Centrum were excellent, even the production shows were good. We were very disappointed in the entertainment on the Majesty of the Seas in May 2004 and assumed it would be along the same line on this ship, we were wrong, it was much better, and there was a lot MORE to do on this ship.
We had a JS on the 10th floor, where they have added balconies. It was a very roomy cabin and the balcony looked like it had always been there. The decor was very nice and there was lots of storage space. Bathroom had a tub/shower combination, vanity was "faux" marble.
Johnny Rockets was fun, $3.95PP but they do serve the best onion rings I have ever had anywhere!
We booked this cruise for pure relaxation, and it more than fulfilled our wishes, we will certainly sail her again, it is a very nice ship indeed.
Oh-the embarkation took about 10 minutes and the departure was the best we have ever had. Our color was called at 7:45AM and we were off the ship by 8AM, in our car and on the way home by 8:15AM. I was amazed at the ease of getting luggage and going through immigration. Ports of Miami and Ft. Lauderdale could learn a lot from how they do it at Port Canaveral. Just another reason we will definitely cruise out of this port again.
Anyone looking for a short cruise this is it! I saw a few posts a week or so ago on these boards that were wondering whether to take Majesty or Sovereign, I've been on both in the last 8 months and Sovereign wins hands down.
Anyone have any questions I'll be happy to try and answer them!!
