December Cruise

Sail Date: December 18, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Cruise was great; however but dining room service was very slow.  first night was great but got progressively worse on subsequent nights.  Comedy shows were fantastic and the love and marriage show was super.  Crew does a great job making sure you are busy.  Air is a bit stale in the cabin lobby areas.  Got exceptional service from the attendant Johnny in the Serenity area.  What a super attendant--can't say enough about him or that area.  (Serenity is the quiet adult sunbathing area for adults)  Loved the putt, putt area.  Would be nice if 24 hour food choices were more than just pizza.....Also would be nice if the cruise line wasn't so pricey on the photos that they take/try to sell you!

Ship Quality
thought the inside cablin lobby areas were stale--husband had air temperature issues--wound up sleeping on pool desk because cabin was so uncomfortable
Food and Dining
service extremely slow--first night was ok; however sat in high traffic area and chair was constantly bumped, second night, dinner took 1 1.2 hrs, third night, over 2 hrs,,very unsat
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions N/A
the comedy shows were fantastic! love and marriage show was super
Cabin / Stateroom
highly satisfied, we were signed up for an inside cabin and evidently someone cancelled and were upgraded to an outside cabin--well pleased with that--as stated previously, husband did not fair so well--his cabin was so hot that he had to sleep out on the deck..complained several times
Service and Staff
special shout out to Johnny in the Serenity area--can't say enough about him!
Children's Programs N/A
Port Canaveral, Florida Use the Park and cruise (look it up on line) it will save you money on your parking....use self assist when disembarking--easiest getting off the ship--what a breeze that was going through customs!
Nassau, Bahamas very chaotic getting off the ship as in any port and you constantly bargaining at the straw market.if you are turned off by this stay on the SHIP!


Take advantage of the food!
