I am a very anxious traveler and this was the most relaxing vacation yet. The process to get on board was so quick and they ran everything so smooth. With exception of one evening at the dinner table, I didn't even feel the boat moving. I took an over the counter motion sickness medication, Bonine, that was non-drowsy and enjoyed every last minute on this cruise. The people were fabulous, the room qualities were fantastic and the wait staff made this vacation more than we could have asked. I recommend traveling with a group of friends and going to the white table cloth dinners EVERY night and pig out. Food was excellent and they offer things that you usually wouldn't try elsewhere. Great menu, great service, fun for all ages. When they ask you for a picture, take them! You don't have to buy them, but they are so fun to look at the next day. OVERALL, if you are debating going, just do it! You'll have a pleasant vacation! Big Smile

Leave the TV on the front camera while you sleep so you can see when the sun comes up! It is so much more pleasant to wake up to than a wake up call via telephone!

Ship Tip

On the last night, pack your bags ahead of time. Ours actually docked a few minutes early and we were able to carry our belongings right off. If you are traveling with multiple parties in different rooms, white dry erase boards came in handy BIG TIME. ENJOY!
