We got off the ship yesterday. Overall it was a fun trip. Since this was our 6th cruise, we had high expectations from prior ships.
The ship was having a few problems due to some electrical issue. The AC did not work on the first day. Started working the next morning. We were in a JS
, cabin 8110. Our friends were just up the hall and had no problems with the AC.
Our cabin stewart was ok. In the past we never ran out of ice. On this cruise, had to call. On the Sovereign, Serenade and Majesty we were brought extra ice buckets. The TV remote kept loosing it's program. I called to find out how to program it, no-one showed up. Our shipmates recieved there Crown Anchor gift, we did not. The guest service counter got them for us. The cabin was kept clean and neat, just not as good as prior cruises.
The ship still cannot get up to full speed. This caused our ports to change around. This would not have been a problem, if we were notified. Several people on this board, were sent e-mails. Our 4 cabins did not recieve anything. Any excersions booked thru the cruise line were fine, but stuff we booked on our own was messed up. Wish we would have know. Had a party booked in Key West for friday, we had to cancel.
The Food was great overall. (It must have been, gained 10 lbs.) Our waiters were awsome. The timing could have been better on bringing out food, don't think it was the waiters. The windjammer was pretty good. Crowded as always, but overall nice. The bars were awsome, the bartenders were always on the ball. Got to know a few, and the drinks were awsome. Room service was on the ball as always. Our morning coffee was always on time.
The entertainment was pretty good. I love the island band up on the pool deck. Bolaros nightly band was great as well. They had the Nelson Brothers which several of our party went to. They really enjoyed it. They did play some on the last night in the center lobby. That was a nice touch.
Overall it was a nice cruise. Looking forward to the next one.
