Well folks, here it is!! The ship is big and gorgeous! I sailed the week of June 9th, 2001.When I first arrived, the room was full of smoke!!! I wish they had no-smoking signs in each of the rooms. Anyway, I told the state room attendent and she surprisingly got all the smoke smell out of the room! I did aquire a bad sinus headache from it the first night. As for the food, it was OK. The buffet breakfast at the Windham was average. The eggs were dry and tasteless. The dinner was of good quality, but portions were small. The lobster and grouper were great. Desert portions were small. The midnight buffet was gorgeous. There were mostly deserts which were great.The service in the dining room and our state room attendent were both great. The entertainment was fantastic. All the shows were different and the ice show is a plus.My daughter loved the teen disco. Lots of things for teens to do. They loved ice scating, rollerblading, and basketball. The gym was fantastic. All the latest equipment and clean too. They shouldn't charge you for the classes though. As for the photography, the people they hired do a great job but they won't cut you a break. The girl who takes the pictures is very rude. They try to sneak in "walk in fees". There was a gentlemen behind the counter who was also rude but the boss was nice. If you buy four 8 X 10's you get their video for free. If you buy three 8 X 10's and spend another $50.00 in pictures, they won't give you the lousy video for free and I mean lousy. We took the party boat in St. Thomas. There isn't enough time at alot of these stops. They should skip Nassau. It's hot and humid there and the people who work the taxis are pushy. The straw market is no big deal. St. Thomas is beautiful and we loved the shopping. The Explorer's private beach in Labadee is absolutely beautiful!!Watch out for the market. They hound you there!! San Juan is no big deal. When we had to leave the ship they were fast and effecient getting us out. AR-Florida
