Embarkation: Getting to Park n Go was a challenge as there were eight ships in looking for a total of 54,700 plus passengers. However, once we made it through the traffic, the rest of the embarkation was very well handled. We were in ... Read more

This is not a short review I'll be touching on a lot of subjects. We've done ten other cruises so we're not newbies, but not as much as my parents who are 90+ trips cruising but they were just on Silhouette so we were comparing the ... Read more
