Hope you have a great cruise! What did you think of the Hyatt? It received mixed reviews. Have they finally opened the pool?

I've never stayed at a "Hyatt Place" before, but I like the concept. I know this location just opened a few months ago - so maybe there were some kinks to work out.

The rooms are quite nice, very spacious, with nice bathrooms. For dining, the eatery is open 24 hours and you can either order ahead and pick up, or dine in the rather unconventional dining area. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. I haven't seen info on the pool, but I'll try to remember to ask on the way out.





The room...

We made it!! Our party is all accounted for, and we're now waiting to board. We arrived at the port at 11am, and there were only 10 or so people in line at Terminal C. They just called boarding group #2 at 11:25am.

We were on the inaugural in November. We had a much longer and embarkation. They actually started about an hour late, so the crowd started building up quickly. Have a great trip.

I hope you enjoy your trip. I have to wait until May.

I see you are a beer drinker. If you get this message before leaving, can you take pictures of the latest beers available on the ship? Especially what on draft at the District Brewhouse.


Thanks and have fun!

Lunch at Savor... Grilled Grouper sandwich on a pretzel roll. The flavor was great, but the execution allowed the bottom bun to get soggy. Knife and fork... problem solved!
