Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
"My time dinning" seating was allowed upper level, only. IZUMI was a very romantic experience. Windjammer offered variety of nationality dishes. Most, would have been more appealing to a European clientele. Obtaining a beverage was bit of challenge. Park Café was a bit of a challenge. Until we figured out the system.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved the Solarium area...away from pool crowd and smoking areas. The Centrum "hub" was perfect.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Best Ever Location* King bed +sofa & table. Lots of closet & shelf space. Can't really complain about cabin attendent. They have multiple responbilities & requests to contend with. However- in room phone was nasty. We suspect the phn & remote was culprit...day 6..we were coughing & sneezing. Medical visits required after cruise.

Ports of call

New Orleans, Louisiana

5 out of 5
Our Home Port

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Love the Conch Train tour & Hemmingway's Home

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas Did not visit port

"water too rough for tenders". Actually- thru our bionoculars, we could not see ANY activity on this island. There appeared to be large construction equipment.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Nassau still offers venders, who will "demand" your presence in their store. Good to see the Straw Market was"crazie as ever"!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Smooth.
