Review summary

Our first cruise, given as a gift by our daughter to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Loved it and talking of plans to cruise again. So may highlights, I'll need to write them down so I can remember them all. The night the headliner show recognized those celebrating their 50th or more anniversaries was very special, called up and were able to dance. Then when at Dazzles before we left hubby again surprised me and we danced. The food, the staff, talking with folks from other countries. We have to go again, we could not do it all. Oh and sitting on our balcony and watching the ocean and sometimes land go by. Coming into and leaving Ports of Call. Unplugging from social media was relaxing also. Loved it all.

Food and Dining

Main dining room was fabulous and an experience all its own. Our every need was anticipated, servers were awesome and very entertaining too. Food was delicious, so many choices. And there was a different no sugar added dessert every night besides the sugar free ice cream. Hubby diabetic.

Wipe Out Cafe

They had a fabulous Chicken Salad sandwich the day we were there, and their soft serve ice cream and sorbet were a treat.

Windjammer Marketplace

This was so good, but I did get lost from hubby first time. After that we chose a table and went one at a time to get our food. So many choices. And all of those we choose were fabulous.

Sorrento's Pizza

Actually had to skip dinner one night because I was just too full from lunch. About 10 that evening I did get hungry, and the pizza was perfect and hit just the right spot.

Onboard Activities

We did the pools, We watched those on flow rider. Walked the ship to get our bearings. People watched. Loved it all, but need to return to enjoy more of what was offered.

Swimming Pools

5 out of 5

For me going in the morning to pools was best. Too crowded for me later in the day except the Solarium Pool, which I did do later in day.

This was nice. A quieter venue, especially for breakfast when we wanted the quieter time. Was able to get into this pool a few times and just relax even when it was crowded. Enjoyed the more peaceful atmosphere.

Guest Services and Explorations!

When I needed them they were very helpful. Like when our safe malfunctioned and was sending out an alarm and would not open. They were right there and took care of the problem.

Rode this with my daughter. Just stood and went around it was fun. Wasn't ready for the challenge of climbing onto one of the horses. Still a good time.

Beach Pool

Early mornings were best time for us with no crowds then.

The shows we saw were awesome. Aqua Show, Ice Skating, Headliner (saw it twice), one movie, Oh and laughed so hard in the Quest Show. It was worth staying up for.

Loved this port. We shopped on our on and found the restaurant we had seen on a Youtube video, awesome service and food. Beach was beautiful, no time to put my feet in the water, and then for me the highlight was the Yoda Guy. Totally awesome visit.
