This was our first cruise and we truly enjoyed it and plan to return with the entire family. More of a party cruise but still had fun. I prefer a more elegant/luxurious environment and will try a cruise that offers that as well but as stated above this cruise was quite enjoyable. We left out of Galveston, TX and although we drove, the cruise line does offer transportation to and from the airlines. I believe most who flew did so out of Houston and relayed that it was about an hours drive give or take.  The staff was friendly and the food was plenteous and good. All in all I would recommend this cruise. We went to Progresso and Cozumel, Mexico

All the staff was friendly except in the shops. I thought they were indifferent compared to the all the other staff members.

We had a balcony suite. Plenty of closet space and good space.

Ship Tip

If it's your first cruise, you will be seated at tables with strangers if traveling as a couple so be prepared for that. Even if seated in a booth. The only part of the cruise I didn't like. Prefer a more intimate setting for dining. This applies to evening dining in the more formal dining rooms

Crowded and appears chaotic but it was well organized.
