we just wanted a relaxing cruise with sunshine and we did get that.  We were not prepared for the change of itinerary and long wait to embark.  We would have been happier if an email would have notified us to enjoy Miami and arrive later.  Once we were there, we had our suitcases with us and didn't want to take the shuttle to the mall we already visited.  It was not handled well.  When we did embark, there was no direction or announcements we could hear clearly. The ship was nice, staff was attentive and friendly and they threw a fun party to repay us for the changes. I was always a little nervous about the engines since I knew it was a maintenance problem, but had fun

Cabin / Stateroom
Very roomy and clean
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We were told to arrive after 3. We arrived at 3:30 only to be told the ship would not arrive until 8. Chaotic embarking when ship arrived. Up to date emails would have helped
