Review summary

Our first cruise and what a wonderful experience. We initially had concerns about seasickness, but no problem. There were plenty of things to do that kept us occupied. Outstanding food choices and service.

At first, the lines seemed horribly long. However, everything moved along smoothly and quickly.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The main dining room was excellent. It was where we ate most meals. Seating was always available and we enjoyed sharing tables and conversations with our fellow travelers. The specialty restaurants were excellent with superb service. The buffet was enjoyable with many choices of food. It was so popular that we often had difficulty finding a table.

Excellent. We paid for the baggage handling and airline checkin for Southwest. We just walked off the ship, got on the bus, and straight to security since we already had our boarding passes.
