Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

this was a much needed escape!! we opted to turn off phones, leave computers behind, and just relax and enjoy ourselves and each other--we were not disappointed! although there were plenty of options to stay connected via internet and phones, we did not--knowing if we were really needed, there were ways to be contacted. there were days we did not leave the stateroom--we enjoyed room service. my husband read shogun aloud to me cover to cover--we finished the book in 9 days and had the remaining week still to enjoy exploring the ship more. we met some wonderful people in the common areas that i hope we cruise with again later. the casino was fun--and the machines not quite as tight as i expected (based on previous cruise ship casinos). i do wish that since a players benefit is free drinks after a certain amount of play that the casino would provide more staff at they point that many of the players achieved this---this caused a good deal of irritability for both the players and the staff that was unnecessary---if it is not a benefit you wish to offer--then don't--but don't advertise this and then make it need. the ship was immaculate--staff was constantly cleaning and shining--i really appreciate this. the spa services were adequate, expensive, but adequate. the morning stretch is usually my favorite way to start the day--but it was so crowded that i gave up going after three days--i did hear that they moved to another spot that was larger finally, but i did not go back to find out. the size of the ship is perfect--large enough to be able to move around, but small enough to feel cozy and generate meeting people. i would suggest that anyone can enjoy a trip like this one---make it what they need it to be. i highly recommend it--my only regret was that we did not continue on the 12 day med trip that was next!!

so glad we opted to move up to the suite for the long trip--having the extra space and a tub was ell worth it!

the romance package at waterway marriott is aa great way to start the trip!! staff there was wonderful--includes champagne, straawberries, breakfast (in the room if you like), and late checkout at 2pm--only a couple blocks from the ship--great place to stay.

salad bar is excellent--room service is awesome; stay away from the art shows and the jewelry store!! the evening shows are very good...and not overcrowded! the "anytime seating" for dinner was great! didn't feel pushed into a schedule--will do this again.
