Travel, relax, enjoy and learn (optional) marine biology, history, geography, engineering. This trip was the 15 day westbound cruise, Miami to San Diego. We specifically enjoyed ... pretty well everything. But be warned: I'm easy to please: give me neat and clean accommodation, super service, food to feast, enjoyable entertainment, interesting sights and fun shore excursions, and I'm good to go.

I note the favourable quality of the passengers; polite, smart, educated, and genteel. (In this group, I include myself and my pretty partner.) This leads to very pleasant and thought-provoking conversations (in various accents) at meal conclaves and social functions. So a highlight of the journey is the exceptional people we met. Some types good and others less so. Get this cruise one-upmanship: "We prefer Seabourn" (sniff).

Superb variety of gustatory delights exciting for the palate are presented at supper. Not for me is the available light breakfast for early and late risers or even room service; I'm the full breakfast buffet type, and make-to-order stations. Here, I wait only if the line is short; otherwise I could be sitting and resting my gaze on the azure horizon. I enjoyed the galley (kitchen) tour, not having to slave over the stove. Imagine the technology of feeding over 2,000 critical mouths 3 meals a day. There's an escalator to carry waiters from the lower kitchen to the 2 dinner floors. People complain; example: talking to a British couple, they judged the food too fancy and seasoned. Not your thing? head for a cafeteria snack or a snooze in the library.
