The embarkation was slow. Waiting over an hour in line to check in. After completing the check in, awesome!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The alcohol package is the way to go if you are a drinker. You get drinks very quickly. The restaurants and buffets awesome. We did have a small issue with one reservation being canceled (still don't know why) but, the restaurant was able to work it out for us. Unfortunately, we were double charged. Plus, we were charged at another restaurant that the ship personnel were not able to explain. Now we have to sort things out with the cruise line.

Totally sucks! I felt like I was just giving my money away. It would have been the same as if I would have just reached into my pocket and handed over my money. Seriously, I'm not expecting to win but would like to be entertained while playing slots and card games.

Cabin / Stateroom

We were upgraded to a balcony stateroom from winning a bid just days before the cruise. Of course bigger is better but we were very content with our stateroom.

Ship tip

The alcohol package is the way to go if you are a drinker.

Did beach Kayak. Awesome! While we were standing in about 2 feet of water looking at sea life, a stingray swam in the middle our group and right into my leg. Then swam off. AWESOME!
