First ,we were shuttled from the Four Points by Sheraton the early afternoon and arrived comfortably. I chose this Cruise for the Itinerary and Embarkation location. Leaving from Port Everglades was exciting and smooth(we purchased Faster to the Fun). The Ship was surprisingly up to date, for me. The crew, for the most part, was very pleasant; respectable; courteous; helpful and friendly. Made me feel comfortable cruising. The Ports we stopped at were Ocho Rios, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. Didn't care for Ocho Rios too much. The locals "nickel and dimed" us every chance they got. Next time, I'll go to another beach and Not Bamboo Beach. We didn't purchase the excursion from the ship, so we paid $40- for the cab to Bamboo Beach Club. But when we got to Bamboo Beach after a tour of part of the Island, they charged us $10 a piece for a lounge chair. That was overpriced to me. I went on ahead and purchased it anyway, you only live once. Be very careful in Jamaica, its not as safe as the Cayman Islands in which I fell in love with. The Cayman Islands is just a GREAT place to vacation. The town/port is very modern; safe and for the most part secure. We went to Calico Jacks which was very nice and there was enough room for everybody. The water was clear blue and pristine. The Dining experience was good; the food was well cooked; tasty and good. It had a little more variety than some other Cruises I've been on. We spent alot of time in the Casino, in which we really enjoyed. The Disembarkation from the Ship, was a total mess. It was worse than when you stand on line to Embark on the ship. We wanted to wait till the end, we figured it would be less crowded, and we were'nt in a hurry, we were "Totally" wrong. Next time, I'll use my Faster to the Fun Priority Disembarkation benefit. Overall, it was a good cruise but too short!

Amazing Cruise, But Too Short!

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 4F 7295
The cabin was just GREAT! Our Steward(Geraldine)was Fantastic; "on point"; and really just a nice person. She kept the cabin spotless morning and evening. The bed was a little "lumpy" for me, but my Fiancee's side was great. Enough dresser draws for our clothes; everything functioned as it should. Bottomline is that the cabin was kept very tidy everyday.
