Great "little" ship

Sail Date: September 14, 2016

Room Type: Oceanview

We took this cruise at the last minute because we are taking this ship in March through the Panama Canal and it gave us the opportunity to get used to the ship. We really enjoyed the quick trip and the layout of the ship. The crew as always was great. This would be a five star event if it were not for the departure in San Francisco. The early passengers, who were mostly retuning to the ship to continue their journey, were not aware that they needed to complete their Customs Declaration form prior to leaving the ship. They were filling out their forms at the customs desk which caused a huge delay in departing the ship for those who followed. We ended up with over a two hour delay. We look forward to our Panama cruise in March.
