Almost didn't make it

Sail Date: January 03, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Our flight was canceled to Mobile where the ship was to leave from because of fog. We had to drive 6 hours to make it to the port and the ship was supposed to leave at 4. We arrived at the ship at 5:30 and thank god for the fog because if not for the ship being delayed we would have never made it. The ship didn't leave until 9:30pm and then we turned around in the middle of the night because of a medical emergency. It was almost a disaster but we made the best of it. This ship is the oldest and smallest ship in the fleet and I would definitely recommend going on a bigger and newer ship as they have stabilizers on them and re less likely to get sea sick as I did.

Pros: Service

Cons: Food

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? No.
