Review summary

Overall, amazing second cruise. The larger ships have ruined us for life. We kept feeling as though we were doing as much as possible on everyday and there were still activities we didn't get to participate in.

Silk

We loved dinning in SILK and thought the food was excellent, the wait staff attentive, and the meals varied.

150 Central Park

5 out of 5

This will forever remain one of the most amazingly memorable dinning experiences for my spouse and I. We paid for the wine pairing and was served a perfect pairing for each of our numerous courses. When we didn't care for the Pinot (which we later found out was a $60 bottle of wine), the server graciously offered an alternate (which we later found our was more than a $100 bottle of wine). The drinks seemed just shy of a full pour, but after 7 courses, I was thankful they weren't fuller.

CATS was such a stunning and moving performance. The artists were all phenomenal! ABBA Cover Band - This was one of the most amazing memories we had on this cruise. My spouse and I are in our late 20's early 30's, and we LOVED the story, music, costumes. We loved it all! DIVE Show - I almost couldn't believe we were on a cruise watching this amazing dive show. It was family friendly and fun ICE Show - We enjoyed the show. Great costumes, awesome jumps and ice skating.

Cabin / Stateroom

SERIOUSLY BOOK THIS ROOM! It's room code was: 1S Central Park View Room Interior It had more space than your average interior room, the window was huge! It wasn't on a walking level, it was quiet and serene being next to Central Park, and we both LOVED sitting in the big window seat reading and people watching.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

3 out of 5
I hate that this port is so far away from the airport. I also wasn't a huge fan of the port terminal. I much preferred Miami where the flights were cheap, the port was a close Uber away, and there were plenty of things to do in the city!

Labadee (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
We paid for the tobaggan ride... meh... fun but not worth the expense ($60 pp if I recall) This was, interestingly enough, our favorite port of call. We spent the rest of the day sitting on the beach and enjoying our all inclusive Labadoozies! I recommend you do the same :)

Falmouth, Jamaica

We paid for a RCI excursion: the Zipline and Dunn's River Falls combo. PROS: Transportation, lunch, and guide were included. CONS: The Zipline was a long drive away, it was fun but nothing worth the expense. The Dunn's river falls was neat, but could have been done independently for a fraction of the price. The sales people outside the falls were rude and too pushy. Overall: Save money by booking a taxi to where you want to go and enjoy a nice meal away from the rest of the tourists.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Paid for an RCI excursion of the Mayan ruins. PROS: Loved our guide, he was very knowledgeable. Peace of mind knowing if we ran late (the ruins are over 2 hours away) the ship would wait for us. Affordable shopping around the ruins for trinkets. CONS: Really far away! Must take a ferry, then a long bus ride. Little time to explore the city. OVERALL: Do this excursion if you want to cross it off the bucketlist. I would definately recommend booking with RCI on this one due to the distance and potential difficulties with logistics.
