Review summary

Great Cruise overall. The Atlantic is tricky in January, so it was windy and you felt it on the ship. A first for me on an Oasis Class ship.

This was a Boardwalk Cabin. I missed looking directly at the Ocean. Very nicely kept but not my favorite. Privacy lacking.

Even better than embarkation. Facial recognition was the key. Off the ship in less than 15 minutes.
