First of all the food was good. Not just o k but good. We had seen a drop off in recent years but our whole party of 11 thought the food was greatly imporved. We ate in the dining room every night except one night we dined at Portofino's. Portofino's was excellent. Where can you eat in a restaurant like that with great service for $20.00. That $20.00 does include the tip, but we asked and out of that $20.00, your waiters (2 at our table) each get $2.00. So we tipped them a little more. Well worth it. Caribbean night is the best night to go, in our opinion.
We had a ton of families on our ship due to Easter week. Our cabins in the front of the ship on deck 8 and never once did we hear kids running in the hall ways. There is a curfew for kids under 18. They have security on the ship after mid night asking kids for their cards and making sure they are old enough to be out.
Soda card stickers are $42.00 for adults and 26.00 for kids. You get a Coke insulated glass with a cover. They are great for the pool to keep your drink cool. You do not need the glass to get a drink, just your card with the sticker.
We did not get to Labadee (of course) We did nothing in the Bahamas because it was Easter Sunday and all stores were closed. We stayed on the ship.
We missed Grand Cayman. Very windy that day and cloudy. Rough sees. So sad we did not get to go with Captain Marvins. So we had alot of time on our ship. A little to much. I enjoy the ports.
We ate at Johnny Rockets once for lunch. There was no charge and about a 5 minute wait for a table. Food was delicous but our service was slow. I think it was just our waiter because all the other tables seemed to be getting their food faster.
The ship does not look old and worn. It is still beautiful. The carpeting look older but not terrible but the rest of the ship is in excellent condition.
All in all we had a great time. Our group had ages from 10 to 70. Everyone loved it. Whats not to like about a cruise. Its the perfect vacation.
If anyone has any questions I will try to answer them.
