Review summary

i am in love with cruising and looking forward to my next. I was looking at Alaskan cruises while waiting to get off. Really wanted a couple of more days... the ports seemed rushed!! The only thing that i may do different next time is to book a better place to stay the night before boarding in Galveston. That was not a fun experience.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

omg... the ships main dining was awesome and the food was great. But gotta say, if you don't treat yourself to Guys Burgers you might have missed the "ship"!!

Onboard Activities

even though there is always something to do, sometimes i wished for a quite place other than my room.

excellent on all points! One of most favorite parts of the entire trip was calling room service for a pot of coffee and sitting out on the balcony drinking coffee with my husband to watch the sunrise.

Ship tip

You will not use everything that you try to bring on board. Pack as light as you can, it makes getting on and off a LOT simpler.
