Review summary

Embarkation started a little bumpy, arrived in Fort Lauderdale on a red eye. Received text that the ship was delayed from dry dock and not to show up to the port until 5PM.

 

We rented a car drove around and got to the port around 4:30, they boarding had started and we went right on board. 

 

Not sure they got all the work done before they got to Ft. Lauderdale, worker were still onboard on our way to Bermuda. 

 

The ship was in good shape (just out of dry dock), the furniture all look new or at least recovered. 

 

I found the crew to be receptive and welcomeing, with the exception of the coffee bar staff. They were a little short at times and the first i have found to be extremely slow. Didn't bother me much I just drink coffee, but i watched folks have decent waits and were even forgotten about.

 

The dining room was good, the service was good and the food was good. 

 

We dined at the Crown Grill several times this cruise and enjoyed every minute. The food was outstanding and the service was even better.

 

Entertainment throughout the trip was very good to excellent.

We had an inside cabin it was all the way forward. The room was in good repair and clean. Be careful if you are looking at this room. due to it being forward, if you are in a tender port you will hear the anchor drop.

Ship tip

The international cafe is a great place for a cup of coffee and light snack. It does get busy so if you want a seat for awhile get there early. I usually will get there around 8am to catch up my journal.
