Good itinerary and entertainment but dinner in dining room has gone down dramatically by richb395b

Beginning embarkation and final disambarkation excellent. Embarkation in ports suffered from poorly staffed security as long lines and only one scanner of two manned. Cruise director, staff and entertainment excellent as was most of the service staff. Omnipresent load music in Windjammer, even at 5:45 AM, and on deck by pool. Great itinerary. Overpriced excursions containing large groups making it impossible to hear guides; the prices charged should have justified “whispers .” At least one bus was packed as close as airline economy seats. Air conditioning was not always used even during extremely hot weather. Dining room food on previous cruises was very good however food on this cruise was mediocre in quality and poor selections. Wait staff was excellent and concerned that you get a good experience.

What a great trip!!! by wegek

Honestly, the itinerary was phenomenal and I had a great vacation. The representative from was useless. She was unavailable and never returned calls. I used for the benefit of my Delta card, but I wouldn’t again in the future. It was a 3rd party booking and being that my rep was unavailable it made handling questions and arrangements a little more complicated. I don’t like being negative, however, Theresa Pratt was just not worth the extra miles I received due to some aggravation I had to handle with the cruise.

Great ship with magnificent ports of call. Staff is always excellent. Food at buffet (Windjammer) much better than the regular dinner choices (surprised!). Rooms look clean but quite dirty at the "hidden places" (under sofa/beds/mattress).

Definitely book your My Time dining reservations early and ask for the same table/wait staff each night. It makes the cruise so much more memorable!

Make sure to make it to the Helicopter pad on deck 6 during sunset to take some unforgettable pictures.
