When you leave Miami as Hurricane Matthew is hitting the Florida coast, your 2800 passenger ship leaves with 1600 passengers. It was nice to be on a less-crowded ship.
- We were told by email that we couldn't check in until 5 pm. Reality was that we checked in fine at 3:30 pm.
- We didn't know that we were skipping Coco Cay until we go on board. That seems unfair.
- I got targeted by the comedian during the opening show -- made fun of my laugh, my clothes, even my name. ("Mark? Did he just bark at me?"). What's the point of having a comedian attack people on vacation? He was stupid and not funny, but it still ruined my night on vacation. Why hire that kind of comedian for a cruise ship?
- The staff were clearly unhappy with the smaller crowds. The dining room staff were bored. I had a bar staff tell me that my wife and I that we were "losers" for doing so poorly on trivia.
