Drove over to Fort Lauderdale from the west coast of FL. Parked the car at Park-n-Go after reserving our dates online. Had an easy check-in and we were shuttled over to the cruise port in less than 5 min. Had an extremely easy check-in process and were on the ship in less than 10 min. We were able to go right to our room and our suitcases were there waiting for us in about 30 minutes.
The food, well what can I say, was top notch! Everything was wonderful. We ate at the dining room 1 night because our dinner time was at 8pm. Too late for us. The rest of the time we ate at the Lido buffet which never disappointed us. Food was excellent, from breakfast all the way to dinner and let's not forget the desserts, they were wonderful too. Especially the Dessert Extravaganza on Thursday night. The crew does a wonderful job at presentation and taste. The crew onboard were always smiling and helpful. They are the most pleasant people, and I must say, management has everything rolling along smoothly.
Departing from the ship was a little hectic trying to get into an elevator for expedited departure. Make sure you leave your room early to get down to floor 1 for this, otherwise the elevators will be full everytime they stop on your floor. Once we made it to the 1st floor to disembark, we were led to the exit and were off the ship and outside in about 5 min. Customs were easy and only spent about 10 seconds at the desk and went outside, where our shuttle was waiting for us and got to our car within 5 minutes and were out of the parking lot quickly thereafter. For $51 to park your car, you can't go wrong. We even got to see wild monkeys when we entered the Park-n-Go lot!
Everything was great and I would highly recommend Holland America.
