Embarkation was quick and easy and our room was ready when we boarded. We only had small bags so it was great to be able to drop them and go. We went right to the buffet of course and it was very good. We got on pretty early so it was not too crowded yet. There was a lot to choose from but the layout was not very convenient. There is 2 parts to the buffet so it takes some time to go through and see what they have. All in all pretty good.
The room was very nice with full size TV's. That was really nice. The reception was great during the whole cruise. There were lots of movies to choose from for free along with TV shows and music programs.
You have to keep your room key in a slot by the door to keep the lights on but that is no big deal. We found the bed petty uncomfortable. Our room stewardess was great. She was very friendly and chatty. Very very helpful. Her name is Rowena and we will look for her on future cruise's.
The ship is beautiful and modern. Very clean. We found there was not a lot that we liked to do so we spent a lot of time in our room relaxing. This seemed to be a very sedate cruise. We went to one show that was really good and one comedy show(that was all they had)that was just so so. We got off the ship at both ports and did a city tour at St. Johns. The ports were nice but this is the end of season so there was not too much going on. The weather was pretty cold so we could not spend much time on deck. I felt sorry for the crew members that had to work on deck.
The casino was awful. It is pretty small and no one was winning. To play you have to use your room key and set up an account. The do not pay out tickets and will time out in about 5 minutes if you are not hitting buttons. I know this is for security but it is annoying if your playing a bonus game and the your session times out. Your winnings go into your bank and you have to either put more money in or take it our of your bank.
So we enjoyed the cruise very much and were very relaxed. Halloween was great with the crew and lots of guests dressed up. We would go again but in warmer weather.
