Besides Food Venues, Name Features you LOVE about your favorite Cruise Ship

I love "Movies Under the Stars" on Princess because it reminds me of the good old days of drive-in movies. The movies aren't always that great but I always stop by for my free popcorn and relax for awhile on deck.

Discovery at Sea is another Princess feature I enjoy.

My 2 favorite areas are the adults only pool and the Dive-in theatre

On Carnival Fantasy class ships, there is an open air dining area behind the Lido buffet. It's small and largely unused. We love to sit there and relax with a cup of coffee or a snack.

We agree the "movie under the stars" feature is good. But my favorite, on the Carnival Spirit class ships is the inside promenade. So many people miss it and therefore it is rarely busy and very cool. Each one is decorated to fit the theme of the ship. For example, the Legend has Sherwood Forest. I also enjoy the mini golf on any ship, a lot!

The balcony - morning coffee, afternoon wine.

I really enjoy the live music throughout the ship.

On Celebrity Solstice class I like the space ratio of people to space so the ship never feels over crowded, The adults only pool, the aft bar and tables at the back of the ship, The glass blowing studio, and the lawn club.

On Carnival, the outstanding service and non-stop activities.

On Princess, the total relaxation, Crooners, and the Piazza.

On Celebrity, the lack of crowds and lines.

What I appreciate most about any ship is that it has a dome over the pool. Ms. Amsterdam does and so do the Carnival ships. I always look for the feature on a cruise ship. I hate to be indooors when on a cruise ship during daylight hours. Even in bad weather, I know that I can sit by the pool.

The basketball court, and the decks that have just a rail on the outside to walk along and watch the sea go by.
