Review Summary

Perhaps due to weather, this has been the rockiest cruise I have ever been on. I am still experiencing the post-cruise-syndrome (the floating sensation when sit/stand still) 4 days after getting off the ship, which usually doesn't last this long for me. We (3 people) had an oceanview room, and we were not crowd at all - 2 twin beds and 1 full-size pull down bed. Bathroom was not that great, agreed with other reviews that upgrade is needed - had a weird smell and the shower appears not too cleaned upon our arrival. Dining options were wonderful - I was never hungry. Staff was mostly very courteous - except guest service appears to have miscommunication with other services regarding hours and charges, which leads to lot of time wasting in standing in line over and over again. Activity was great - there were lots of options to choose from.

Room was quite spacious for 3 people - 2 twin beds and 1 full-size pull down bed. Storage space (closets and drawers) was adequate. Has a safe to store valuables. Bathroom, however, was not that great - had a weird smell and the shower appears not too cleaned. Our housekeeping was very polite and attentive to our needs.

Non-covered parking was $45 for our cruise. Have shuttle bus taking you to/from parking area and the terminal.
