Just off the ship on the 27th and I will give my opinion of this cruise.
First off - I read all the horrible reviews and was expecting all the honors of the stories, personally speaking yes it wasn't my favorite cruise however it certainly wasn't the worst, and as a matter of my opinion the worst of this cruise is the rudeness and disgraceful behavior of some guests. Loud music in boom boxes, pot smoking in the one smoking area on deck 10, kids running through the halls and sitting on the stairs not allowing people to pass.
Best cruise director I have ever experienced and I have cruised 25-30 times in the past.
Food was average cruise food - we ate in the steakhouse - which was wonderful and the Italian restaurant - I am Italian and the food was OK - we wouldn't have tried however the casino gave us the meal so we went and was glad we did.
Room Stewart was just OK - probably only saw him twice in the 8 days but our room was clean, some times it was as late as 1PM before he got there though. We had a table for 2 in the dining room and our waiter was excellent. Heard a lot of complaints about smoking in casino - I am a non-smoker and have to say I thought this was not an issue for me at all.
Buffet was overall the worst for lunch - you definitely had to settle for things that you might not have originally wanted, however there was never a line at Guys Burgers or the Pizza. As for breakfast we are early risers and were at breakfast between 8:30 - 9AM and never experienced a line or lack of tables. I was always able to get a seat at the pools because I was there before 10am however it was very crowded. I would have loved an adult only pool. My husband had knee surgery recently so we didn't get off at St. Thomas or Puerto Rico so I can't comment on that accept that it's very nice to enjoy the ship when everybody else does. As for Turks we just went to MargarittaVille and parked our stuff on a lounger and hung in the pool for a few hours, nice to not have salt water in the pool for a few hours. Would I cruise the Sunrise again - maybe not in August in New York, however we went through the casino for port charges and taxes only so anytime I can get that kind of an offer I will pack my bags....... Any questions - ask away.
