We try to take 2 cruises each year and this was the first time we sailed from Baltimore. We live in Delaware and loved not having to fly. The port is terrific and embarkation was a snap. We dropped off our luggage, parked, and walked a short distance to the check-in. We were on-board in less that 30 minutes.
We traveled with friends and didn't plan any excursions except to visit the Space Center. This was trip was for total relaxation.
We reserved our dining time and table size before the cruise and it was perfect. We had the same table, or the one next to it, every night and never had more than a 2-3 minute wait.
We liked the food and never had trouble finding something good to eat. We did go to Chops one night for the celebration package and thought there was a slight change to what we had expected as far as wine with dinner. However, the dinner was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
As usual, we ejoyed the casino and actually came out ahead!
We spent the day at the Space Center which was very interesting and worth the price. In Nassau we walked around for a little while and then went back to enjoy the ship.
The private island was terrific and the food was very nice. It was great to be able to have one last beach day before facing winter.
All in all, we really enjoyed this cruise and I would sail again from Baltimore on this ship.
