This is our first cruise on the ship and with an easy departure only a few hours away out of Galveston we thought why not! We arrived a day early and stay at the Habor House which was wonderful- highly recommend this boutique hotel for cruisers. The ships are so close you can almost touch them. Our room had a great view of the ship coming into port that morning, helped build the excitement. Embarking was not as flawless and it could have been but once we were on board it was great. Room (balcony) was clean and well appointed. Our robes were folded and waiting for us love being a Diamond Plus member.
Chilly leaving Texas and the first 12 hours were a little rough, plenty of sea sickness going around (luckily not me!) but extra effort was put in place to make everyone more comfortable. Once we hit calmer sea and the weather warmed all was right with the world again and we all hit the pools!
So many choices for food and entertainment it's almost impossible to be let down. We took a kitchen tour and were amazed at all that goes into feeding us. Everything from the belly flop competition, rock climbing, the flow rider (not me-lol), Trivia games, even a little karaoke there really is something for everyone...
We enjoyed a wonderful diner at Sabor Modern Mexican which had just been added to the ship. Table side guacamole is highly recommended from this Tex-Mex lover.
