Great Cruise

Sail Date: September 21, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

ship was the perfect size; took maybe 2 days to figure out the lay of the land. sadly, the ship is being sold and replaced by 50% larger one. play progressive trivia; bring a cribbage board.

Not having to eat at a set time every meal/day allowed you more freedom; sharing tables with strangers we found to be interesting and a little exciting (Forest Gump's box of choco

Cons: food quality was not as good the first 2 days as it was the last 5
