Flew from CT to Miami, arrived at the port around 10:00, was not able to board so we dropped off our luggage and walked over the bridge to a shopping area, nice place to walk around. When we got back around 11:30 we were able to get on the ship. It was the quickest, smoothest process I have ever experienced.
The ship is beautiful. I thought the food was very good. Toward the end of the week the lunch buffet got a little old but the dinners were great. On lobster night the lobster tasted so good and juicy. The sea bass was also great. We ate at Portofinos twice. What a meal to remember. I think they had to roll us out the first time. Desserts are exceptional. Service was wonderful. They aim to please. There is always so much to do on the ship that you can never fit it all in. You have to sleep sometime. We enjoyed the wine bar, they have a sampler at the end of the menu where you get to try four different wines (2 oz) . This was a fun thing to do before dinner. The pub was always fun too, lots of singing and drinking. We would always go to the Cafe Promenade around 5:00 for quite time and little sandwiches. We had a balcony room which was wonderful. Everyone was friendly and ready to have fun.
The ports were nice. Did the BOB in St. Thomas, walked around Atlantis in Nassau, had friends meet us in San Juan and take us to a beautiful beach - (lots of construction in San Juan and we did not dock at the place where we were suppose to in Old San Juan so there was a mix up there) Coco Cay is a fun relaxing time. Lots of sun.
We packed "adult beverges" in our suitcases and had no problems. It wasn't like the cruise line didn't make money on us, our bill was quite substantial anyways. I cannot imagine what it would have been if we didn't have something with us.
We also did the "Rasul" treatment in the Spa. This was great. As a couple you cannot have any inhibitions whatsoever in doing this. It was a blast. The price was I believe $49.00 each but if you spend $150 or 175 in products you got the treatment for free.
The only bad part of the whole cruise was when you get off the ship. The baggage is put on a carousel similar to the airport. This takes a long time and there were lots of people who could not find their luggage. We got off the ship at 8:00 am hoping to have a nice day in Miami, instead we ended up staying looking for luggage until 12:00. Someone had taken our luggage by mistake ( I even put a ribbon on the handle) Luckily the person who took our luggage (didn't they read the luggage tag???) lived in Florida and was able to bring it back to Royal Carribbean the next day. They said that they are sending it to us via UPS but we still have not received it. Hopefully soon. So everyone make your luggage very recognizable to you.
This was my sixth cruise, (3rd on Royal Carribbean) and I like this line the best. You cannot go wrong on the Voyager class ships.
