Short & Sweet

Sail Date: October 2010
Destination: Cruise to Nowhere
Embarkation: Norfolk

Embarkation was somewhat slow. After we parked our car and shuttled to the port it took almost two hours from the time we arrived (about 1230) till we boarded. The local roads surrounding the port seem inadequate for the amount of traffic that results from the folks arriving and leaving the ship. Our advise is to try to get there early; otherwise, you will be stuck in a line for over two hours.

Our Ocean view cabin on the main deck was spacious & comfortable. The overall service was outstanding (e.g., dining room crew/Maitre d', cabin steward)! The ship's day-time entertainment was a bit lackluster; but, the evenings shows dance clubs, and comedy club more than made up for it. In any case during the day we rested and enjoyed the cool sunny day.

Evening dinning in the main dinning room was just OK. The food in most instance seemed bland. For lunch we highly recommend the Mongolian Grille.

Disembarkation was the best of the four cruises we have been. We More waited in our cabin until our section was called and in minutes we were in our shuttle to the parking lot.

Overall we enjoyed our short cruise & planned to do it again next year. Less
