It was worth the money

Sail Date: July 01, 2012

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The only criticism that I have is the way that there were not enough points of re-entry after visiting Key West. There were only two doors open both with single file lines. We stood for half an hour in the very hot sun. Then when we arrived back on the boat the dining room was not available and the buffet was so.....crowded. Need to rethink that....also, why is the mustard drill done when the boat is moving for the first time? It is so hot and uncomfortable and now the boat is moving for the first time so the first possibility for sea sickness is now imminent and that's when the mustard drill is done. Couldn't it be done prior to the boat pulling out?

Pros: service

Cons: organization of re-entry to the ship from Key West

Service and Staff
Costumes were fabulous\, vocals OK\, show pacing was lacking especially in the Paris show\, special effects good\, expect for the huge talking sofa (what was that about)\, dancers were for the most part good but unison of movement was sketchy at times.
