A relaxing, wonderful experience

Sail Date: September 05, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

As our first cruise, there were so many things I loved about it. They give you plenty of activities to do, and all of the staff is very friendly, helpful, and attentive. They made everything very understandable, and were always polite and open. I loved that our room was constantly attended to, and throughout the cruise they sent little notes of love for our anniversary.

The only thing I can think to improve is the time you spend waiting for dinner. Of course they fed a lot of people on the boat, so the time it took to get our food was understandable.

I would recommend this to anyone who hasn't cruised before. It's a good taste of the cruise life!Happy

Cabin / Stateroom
If you order a queen bed just remember it's two beds pushed together, but it's manageable! The amount of room is perfect and it's nice to have a window overlooking the ocean.
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
The dinners could be a little faster though!
Los Angeles (Long Beach)
Best western selections in this area are nice and affordable if you book early. They also offer a complementary shuttle to the ship.


The grand prize they advertise for bingo is not until the last day at sea, so if you participate in Bingo that's the best night to do it. Also, get to the ship on the first day early! Just before 11 am if you can. It will give you more time to explore and less time waiting in lines.
