Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2018
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Verandah Stateroom

I've been on quite a few cruise line ships. This ship sets the bar .. !st the big stage theater is a technical surprise..amazing.. have to see and experience it. I lack the words.

Next the cafeteria food court has individual chefs making for example your pasta dish with the ingredients you select.. Salad stations similarly; carving stations with an incredible selection of sides, and eastern food stations with made to order dishes..


The food wherever we ate was great. My better half is a vegan and they actually had a separate menu with dishes for vegans and vegetarians.. "A pleasure not to have to track down chefs to order a vegan meal"

Next and very important to everyone WALK IN SHOWERS..That's right regular showers you don't have to step out of to wash your lower body.. excellent.

Oh and there is a retractable roof above the pool so when the weather gets a little inclement they can close the roof either partially or all together.. great feature

At the main pool loungers with comfortable cushions. AND sectioned off places on the deck above the pool where couples could share a full length couch.

The service by the staff 2nd to none

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VD 4217

Not sure what the different letters for the Verandah stateroom stands for?

That said excellent roomy stateroom

The best part a walk in shower (you don't have to step out of the shower to clean your lower half)

Also liked the foot rest for the balcony chairs

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

really do not like sailing from Fort Lauderdale.. To crazy with traffic when 3 or 4 ships are accepting passengers at the same time
