It had been several years since my last short cruise and was impressed at the organization and ease of both boarding and disembarking processes. As I was traveling with first time cruisers, found that the initial orientation session the first evening to be less than expected. The cruise director should have spent more time giving information about the services, like operation of cabin A/C units (difficult to operate unless one can reach the ceiling!), movement of the boat, meals/food availability and how the casino worked regarding card usage, charges, etc. I spent an unnecessary amount for a lavolier (sp?) before I was given one for free in the casino. The stateroom was a bit smaller than expected - but fine for one person. The cabin steward was friendly and kept me supplied as necessary. I was disappointed that there was no hair dryer. All in all I did have a nice time as did my travel companions and will probably do it again.
