When it wasn't being used for private functions, this was a nice, quiet spot was the Safari Club with a great view from the stern.

Embarkation at Fort Lauderdale was reasonably smooth. Debarkation was not very good. Late and virtually no porters available. Be aware!

Spend some time in the afternoons at Cafe Latte-Tudes ..have a Latte and enjoy the beautiful guitar music by Lorenzo Dino and piano music by David McFarland... Evening music by the 12 Bar Band was always fun,

Its really fun to go to the solarium when its empty and use that pool because it is so relaxing and just like your own private wavepool!

Purchase the Premium Beverage Package if you enjoy cocktails, as each mixed drink costs a minimum of $10 plus 18% tip. Wine by the glass is included for selections $12 or less, as well as soda. It was well worth it for us. Specialty dining package was offered for $70 each for 3 sittings.

The online water package description was miss leading. I read it to mean $39 a day, so I did not buy. If I had understood that the $39 was a one time fee for a supply delivery of water to room, I would buy.

If you like to have wine with your formal meals, take advantage of the ability to each take a bottle onboard. The dining room staff will tag and store any unfinished bottles each evening. Otherwise, expect to pay $11 on average per glass plus gratuity.

Just remember this is a older smaller ship, it does not have all the bells and whistles the big ones have.It is a very nice ship you will love it.

Please talk to someone if you have any issues because they are more than happy to make things right.

Go to the Windjammer more options for food and you get to choose what you want.

My time was not as expected as reservation still required and specific dining room as well. Felt like second class diner.

In the solarium there's a small place for Salads, and Sandwiches, they offer a very good Roast Beef Sandwich. In the WindJammer Cafe, they have Ice Cream machines, that offer Chocolate and Vanilla almost all day. Try the Izumi Restaurant, they offer Sushis, but also food to cook over a Hot Stone.

While it is cold outside, this ship has a really nice indoor pool that is well worth using!!!
