Getting on the bus from the airport was a bit hectic. We were suppose to be the first ones on, and all of the sudden there were tons of people cutting in line. I did not like the way they handled it. We were the first to arrive at the airport(8:00 am) and almost didn't get on the first bus.
Getting on the ship was a little hectic also, you had to have your birth certificate out when you got off the bus in the middle of the parking lot. I did not care for that, being such a important document. Once we got inside the building the line did seem to move fast, and we got on the ship about 12:30.
We had a ocean view on the main deck. It was very nice, lots of space. Plenty of closet and drawer space. Our room attendant did a great job, towel animals and all! The bathroom was good size. Our room was ready when we got on ship, which was nice. Our past cruise on Disney our room wasn't ready and had to cart our carry on around with us.
The food was great, from the dining room to the buffet. We really enjoyed the pizza, very good. Went to one midnight buffet. It was very neat, but the food wasn't all that special. But definitely worth staying up for once. They make all kinds of things out of fruit and veggies! Ice sculpture was very neat also.
This is one thing we didn't like at all. People smoked all over the ship. The only place they can't smoke is in the dining rooms and shows.
We went to two shows. The first one B-Bop was really good. We didn't care for Imagine It as much. But they were both good.
We went on the Sub-Ocean View in Cozumel. We enjoyed it very much, although they had way to many people on the boat. We were packed in like sardines! I believe they had 15 to many people on. There were only suppose to be 44 people, I believe there were a lot more than that.
Getting off was pretty easy. They call your luggage tag color and then you can get off. Ours was the last one!
We really enjoyed the cruise, check out the art auctions.
They have some really good prices on art, and we didn't
have any problem with anyone bidding against us! It
was very interesting, we learned a lot. I would recommend
it to anyone, we really had a good time. The service was really good and
we are gonna book another one come February
or March. It is VERY HOT in August, so if you don't
like being hot, go another time!
