This was the first cruise for my wife and I. The experinence was great from beginning to end. I was a little concerned about getting on the ship and not know ing what to expect.  The process boarding took less than 45 minutes. Once we were on and saw our stateroom we were pleased at the ease of which we got adjusted to this environment. That was made even easier by our steward, Jericho, who was helpful through the entire trip. This trip was made even better by outstanding weather for all but the final day. The food was good and plentiful. We could eat when we wanted with plenty of choices.

The only downside at all was, when entiring the main buffet area, we were squirted with hand washing solutions every time, "washy washy, happy happy," got to be annoying annoying. I understand the need for sanitary conditions. With self hand wash stations every where. I think this was a little overkill.   In general this was a fantastic trip and I would certainly consider it again in the future.
