Enjoyed ports and was glad we stopped in Norfolk instead of Boston.

The port in Norfolk was excellent for first time visitors as you could walk to museums.

Being a full ship it was hard to find seats for movies and shows unless you went one hour ahead of schedule.

Needed more activities geared to adults.  Rock climbing and outdoor movies in a storm just does not work!

Time changes made at 11am messes up the daily schedule.  I suggested 2am time change which was later used on the cruise.

Dinning and room attendants were great.  Customer Service left a lot of room for improvement. They just pass you on to another, to another with no results which upset me to no end.

You had a wide choice of dinning venues.

Getting on and off the ship went smoothly.

Onboard Activities

Rock climbing, golfing and activities outdoors in bad weather not good. Needed skill games such as bowling, ring toss, putting done indoors.

Size of room is okay. Did enjoy the Ocean view.

Do bring your hand lotion, shampoo, conditioner, mouth wash and toothpaste.
Body wash, soap, tissue and toilet paper are provided.

The ship is ready for a makeover as things are showing their use.

Ship Tip

Do enter the drawings going on during your cruise. You never know when you will be a winner.
