We've cruised with CCL and others many times and we're qualified to say this.This was one weak cruise for experienced cruisers.No music at the main pool hardly ever.None ever at the rear pool and certainly no open bar for any length of time that mattered at the rear pool.We saw it open for about an hour ,one time.This boat had almost zero feel for a "Party" atmosphere.Windows in the cabins so dirty you couldnt see out..Virtualy the same food served at the "Windows on the sea Bistro" for 3 days straight.Small veriations on the last 2 days.BTW-the best music on the boat to be found was at "Windows on the sea Bistro".The first day I had to "Remind" the server to serve food to many of us waiting in line while he bobed his head to the band that played for 1 hour a day when leaving a port.Hummm???? When leaving a port ?? Trying to look good for other tourist onland ?? Day two I had to bus our own table to get a seat by a window when the place was empty.Whats up with that.Not exactly CCL's fault but we had wheels torn clean off a piece of luggage after dropping it at curbside for delivery to our room.Also not CCl's fault but we missed a stop due to high winds.Another boring day on the ship .To top things off,on the last night to enjoy the pools and spas,They were closed at 7:30 and 8:00 P.M exactly.We were removed from both.We know.What the heck is that about??? WEAK !!!!! We had a fun time but only because we made it fun for ourselves.One reason to take a cruise is to BE entertained.Experienced cruisers might want to look elsewhere.
We wish we could say it was great
Pros: Getting off the ship and onto some fun
Cons: The lack of a Party atmosphere
