Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Ocean View

Chose this cruise for its ports.

Entertainment was good the first 10 days, but how many times can you listen to an island band play same songs night after night while making up words. Also headliner shows were too loud and not very good. One night was cruise director singing songs from early 1900, and a lot of people got up and left'

Food was good, except for spare ribs in MDR. Couldn't even cut them off the bone. Wouldn't have served them to guests at my house. Windjammer food was good, but only thing hot was the soups. I like my food hot not tepid. Turn up the heat lamps.

Ocean View

Cabin 3N

Didn't spend alot of time in cabin. Was always clean and neat.. Cabins are mostly same on all ships. Don't really care as all cabins get to port at same time.

Port Reviews

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Returned rental car and shuttled to port

Ponta Delgada

We like history, so we walked into town and saw the history and sights. Very nice church in center of town. Early 1400 and still in use and museum

Cobh (Cork)

Took PaddyWagon tour on our own to Blarney castle, Kinsdale and Cork. Be careful of ravens at Blarney castle snack shop, as they will sreal food fronm your hand. Also had lunch in Irish Pub. Great food. Also historic church.


Stayed an extra 2 days, Had hop on hop off bus, but Coprenhagen Card is better choice. It allows you free access to museuns, zoo, Tivol Gardens, free public transportation, etc. People here are very friendly and helpful. Never felt insecure or afraid. Alot of bikes, and no trash in streets. Food can be expensive in resturants, but cafes are reasonable and you get alot of food. Also not alot of chemicals in food. Fresh
