I'm glad to hear you liked the ship!

What did you think of the updated staterooms? Did you get a chance to use the Serenity Deck?

Also what was the transportation advice? I'm cruising on that ship this summer and would love to know if it could save me a few bucks

Hey Johnathan: You will love the new renovatons...a little bigger rooms and bathroom, flat screen tv, small vanity with drawers, closet space is about the same. Helpful hints...take a night light, air freshner, and warm pj's ( the stateroom seemed cool, however you can cut the air flow coming in then it gets stuffy ). I flew into ft lauderdale on saturday and stayed there which was wonderful to start my vacation ,rented a car at the airport, dropped off in miami, the day we sailed which was monday. Dollar Rent A Car offered FREE transportation to the port. Then I reversed it coming back- FREE transportation to the miami airport from the port thru Dollar, rented a car in miami drove to ft lauderdale and stayed over another day. All for $127.00. I saved $150. from the private shuttle drivers ( we were a party of 5 people). My family had a great time lots of shows, clubs, entertainment and FOOD. Where are you going and where do you live?????

Happy Sailing PS the Serentiy Deck in nice however not too much sun...seemed shaded most of the day. But it was off the beaten path, private and quite.

Ah yes actually we rented from Dollar in FLL last time and dropped it off at MIA and took the shuttle. Did you have a hard time finding the drop off at MIA? We drove forever and ended up way outside the airport and could have sworn we went the wrong way. Such a sigh of relief when we finally got there!

It was great not a problem at all....it is very clearly marked now "Rental Returns". I would highly recommend transport this way. It was only a 30 minute drive.

Have a great time in Aug

We were on the Jan 28th and the Feb 2nd. Were you on one of those??

We had a blast. I was Gloria Estefan in the first Legends Show. I did not intend to do the Legends Show on the second cruise of our B2B, but no one signed up for Elton John....so I did him.

Karaoke ROCKED! I love the new digital system. But they also had the CAV system set up so you could use your own cdgs. Melvin (karaoke host) is FABULOUS!!!!

Can't wait until May to give the Legends (ship and show) a visit!!
