Our first cruise experience went well. Cruise Director, Hello Clo, gave us something to look forward to each evening as she opened and closed the entertainment.  Her energetic humorous personality kept us all engaged in the entertainment whether it was her disappointment with our lack of enthusiasm on our first cruise night or hip 70s outfit for the 70s music themed night.

Waiter, Assistant waiter, and our stateroom attendant went above and beyond.  They worked to understand our dietary needs and made sure our son always had room temperature water while we were having dinner and attending a show our stateroom attendant was ensuring our cabin was clean, our bed was made, and there was a cute towel animal to greet us upon our return.  When wine glasses were needed he brought us glasses and we were able to enjoy our wine.

We look forward to booking another cruise in the next couple of years.
