Overall a great ship. Great food and service in the Any Time main dining room. Actually better food than in the specialty restaurants. Great entertainment. Great staff. Only negatives - pool bands for a Caribbean cruise were poor, lots of deck chairs but the ones with straps were very uncomfortable, and the disembarkation was a disaster. It took over 2 hours after going to our group to get off. 1 piece of our luggage ended up in "lost and found" even though all tags were on and totally legible. It was explained to us that if a bag gets mis sorted it goes there rather than being brought over to its number. Messed up the timing for our party of 4 getting off. Last November on our Princess Cruise on their largest ship also docking in Fort Lauderdale, from the time we grouped to getting off took literally 20 minutes.

Food and Dining


We ate at 150Central and Chops. Excellent service. Average food quality. At 150Central our dinner started with a "salt show". 8 small rolls and a container holding various salts from around the world to sample on the bread. We cancelled our 2nd night reservations there .
