Since we live fairly close to San Diego, we don't have the hassle factor of air travel to and from the cruise. We arrived at the port around 11:00 AM, and were greeted by "Sherry", a wonderful person at the pier who coordinates the ... Read more

After 20 cruises, I should know better. But booking late led to taking a cabin on a lower deck than usual, and, boy, did we pay for it! Cabin 4051 should NOT be sold as a wheelchair accessible category VD cabin. Here are some reasons: ... Read more
