Mitsugirly's JOYful cruise.
Ship Tour Pictures
On to the ship pictures.....
We will start with our interior room. Not much to see here and it's so small that it won't take long. 😂
As I said before, we stayed in room 13525 interior and it was toward the front of the ship.
This is what it looks like when you enter the room. Yep, Mr and Mrs had their beds separated. I know you can ask for them to be put together but with the room so small and Sakari trying to get in and out of her bed above, we decided to just leave it that way. That way we would have a walkway instead of it being along the wall and running into the dresser area at the end of the bed. I'm starting to rethink this interior stuff now.
Here are the shelves to put all of your clothes on. Our snorkeling stuff and bathing suits went up on the top shelf, clothes on each shelf on the side and then there's the ever so small safe. Shoes would go on the floor in there along with our bag we were carrying around and considered our carry on bag on the plane. We didn't even bother to hang up any clothes since there were only 5 hangers in there.
The tv area was located on the wall beside the closet. If I was trying to put away clothes (or when it was time to pack for the next days excursion or to go home) having the closet door open covered half the tv and we couldn't see the screen to watch whatever show was on so I had to keep opening and grabbing things and shutting it. Opening it, shutting it.
Here is the bathroom. A few shelves to put your necessities on, which worked out well for what we had.
And lastly the small telephone booth shower
Yep, that's all there is to see here.
Moving on to the ship...I'm going to warn you ahead of time, I missed A LOT. Things that I didn't realize was on there and things that I thought I had picture of but didn't. Also, there were times that I had the camera on the wrong setting and I was walking and snapping and didn't realize it wasn't on the "sport" mode. Oops Apologies ahead of time but here goes...
We will start with the only time I landed on Deck 5 and that was the Splash kids club. By the time we made it down there and found it, it was closed.
Moving on to Deck 6:
The Art Gallery, which of course is like other ships and a hallway you have to walk down and you see the art on the sides.
The atrium where you will find Customer Service, Cruise Next, and Shore Excursions. There was also an area on the side which was a second game area and had several games that the library/card room didn't have.
There was a card/library, which had tons of books and a few games like Backgammon, Scrabble, Checkers and so on.
Maltings Whiskey Bar
Taste Dinning Room
Savor Dining Room (the other free dining room and located across from each other)
This is a model of the ship they had on display in a little cubby hole. They details were amazing.
Social Comedy & Night Club
Starbucks in the lobby and the Observation Lounge (also several locations around the ship, like the buffet area).
Teppanyaki (Asian restaurant you pay for: Specialty Restaurant)
Enclosed smoking casino area
The Local (which is what used to be O'Sheehans on the other ships). For some reason I never managed to get a picture of this area because there were so many people constantly in the area that I just said to myself "I'll get it later" and never did. But, it wraps around the open atrium below.
I did manage to get a few pictures of the game room right beside it. Other ships have this as well.
The Manhattan Room...ugh, I went in there once and never went back for pictures but this was the room they had everyone winding in and out of to get off the ship. So, I managed to get a few then.
This was made out of feathers
Moving on to Deck 8
District Brew House
LaCucina: Specialty Restaurant
LeBistro French Specialty Restaurant
The Open Area (that is usually called the 5, 6, 7 area or maybe it's 6, 7, 8 area, I don't remember it's been too long lol) But it's probably the most photographed area because of the chandelier.)
Outside seating areas. We did not discover this until almost the very end. Sakari had seen some people on the front of the ship on a deck down below during sailaway and wanted to find it. It looked like a great place to hang out at and just chill.
I thought this was neat. They were 3D people carved into the opening in the wood.
Photo Gallery. You could go in here and use the computer to put in your information and look at all of your pictures taken throughout the week.
Sugarcane Mojito Bar
A List Bar
The Cavern Club
There's nothing but rooms on deck 13, however, the medical center is located here. So, I had to walk over and get some pricing pictures for everyone. I know everyone talks about how expensive it is if you have to visit the medical center but after working over 30 years in the medical field (and a lot of that in billing and so on), not to mention just knowing when you go to your doctor or get labs or test here in the US, I didn't think the pricing was anymore honestly. I did see someone post that they had to pay $1.50 for a band-aid or something like that. Yea, that's expensive for that but still...
The Chess and Ping Pong area along the sides and they were on both sides.
Galaxy Pavilion. This place was super cool and I meant to come back here to get pricing and maybe play but we never did for some reason. The teens Entourage was right beside this so they hung out a lot in this area.
Kiddie Water Park
Ocean Loops, the drop slide.
Yep, it hangs off the side of the ship!
The main pools. One is the family pool and the other was an adult pool. They did design the adult pool a little different this time and I liked the concept. It was placed over to the side instead of the middle, which gives a large area for chairs in the middle and I THOUGHT maybe it was because they would have the dance parties there....but nope! It would have been the best place for it. They still held the parties in the back of the ship in H20.
I also don't understand why they make the family pools (or any of the pools) deep. I mean they were over everyone's heads. In a family pool, there's mostly kids. They do provide life jackets but why wouldn't they make them more shallow for them? Even adults, why does the water need to be over everyone's heads? It's not like it's a "swimming" pool. There's so many people that no one can actually "swim". Everyone just gets in and stands around the sides to cool off. Why not make it a decent standing size so people can stand in the middle? I just don't get it.
American Diner. You can go here in the mornings for breakfast (free) and coffee but lunch will cost you $$
I just had to mention, on this deck they always have the chairs lined up and down on both sides, out in the sun. On this ship, they had a covering over most of the area which was really nice. They should do this on all of them.
Spice H20...where all the fun happens for the 80's and Glow party. I did notice that this area was a lot smaller than the other ships. I wonder why they made it that way...or was it just me?
They had the BIGGEST hot tub back there as well. I've never seen one so big. It was awesome.
The 2 story Speedway
Laser Tag. This place looked like a lot of fun and I heard a lot of people saying it was the best time ever. We didn't play it, although I would have liked to, but figured my foot wasn't quite ready for it yet.
Here are just some extras around the ship. Mostly some of the artwork they had, which was really neat. This entire picture was made out of what looked like comic books.
Remember...the fishy swim toward the front of the ship so if you're ever confused in the hallways going to your room and want to know which direction you are heading...look at the fishy!
So that's pretty much all of the ship pictures I got while on the cruise. There may be some others here and there as we cruised along and did things and will be in the review.
Hope you enjoyed them.
