Room Type: Inside

My family of four had a great time on our cruise! The crew did a good job of keeping our room and the rest of the ship neat and clean. The food was exceptional sometimes and still good at worst. The flexibility of freestyle dining was nice, and we appreciated being able to make reservations when we wanted. (Be prepared to wait if you want to pick one of the nicer restaurants and you don't have reservations!) The only thing we were really upset about was the tender boat process at certain ports. This could easily be solved by some better communication by the crew. We were told two different things by different crew members about how to get a tender boat ticket and ended up costing us about an hour of time at port. My advice is to stick together as a family even if they tell you to send one person to get your tender tickets! That way when the instructions change at the last minute you don't have to scramble to relay the message. Overall, the trip was a good value for what we paid. We would go again.
