Relaxing cruise....just avoid the Spring Break crowd

Sail Date: March 14, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Cruises are usually what you make them.  You can do as much or little as you want.  I did like the ship, but it did not have any type of cool water slides or rock climbing wall.  Wasted space on bocce and a putting green.

It had 5 pools, one which was always overcrowded with 18-22 yr olds on Spring break.  Hey, been there, done that, but there are plenty of places to get away from the crowds too.  The rooms were great, food was great.  Deck staff to get drinks was pretty lacking....I like to be waited on...at least on a cruise.    There was a huge outdoor movie screen showing concerts and movies...under the stars.  It was pretty nice, and easy to see, even during the sunlight hours.

Cabin / Stateroom
It had a mini fridge, and flat screen TV. Small couch would be more useful in this space, than a desk area. Beds were super comfy, and balcony was awesome. Very adequate and has all you need really.
Embarkation and Disembarkation Slow process, getting on, and getting off. 1.5 hr delay getting off.

Lots of people walking on the decks, but not many asking if you need a drink or anything.

Our last ship, on Carnival, had a cool water slide. This one had nothing like that.
