5 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 16, 2015
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 1535
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Great time! Applaud the Cruise Director! He was funny, pleasant and very personable!  He made it great at the shows etc. The Spanish music was excellent but in too small of an area! The Sphinx lounge was hardly ever, if ever, used and would have made for a much better time! People would stand in the hallway and even up the stairs but would leave when not comfortable. I would not recommend this ship for those wanting to dance Spanish music, which is a growing number. There were more people gathered around the Spanish music then in the club at any given time. The casino has old slot machines! They should be updated.

Food and Dining

Food at the coffee cafe could be better with better service. The staff there were not helping much.

Onboard Activities

The Spanish music was very very good but too small of an area! The Sphinx lounge was hardly ever used and would have made a much better time for the activities! People would stand in the halway and even up the stairs but would leave due to not having even a space to stand! You would draw a great crowd if they had a bigger area.

Our room was always clean and ready for us. The towel animals gave us much joy!! We looked forward to them every evening. Our attendant, Devon, I believe was his name was excellent, kind and very pleasant.
