Sail Date: Jan 2013
Cabin: Balcony

On reaching the pier we heard for the first time our ports of destinations had been changed, a little late to make any other plans so off we went. Pleasant experience checking in and we reached the lobby in no time. We first checked on shore excursions as ours had been canceled, worked this out with great help from the staff and were informed of the credit we would receive because of the change.

Found ourselves standing in the middle of the lobby not sure what to do, as passing staff member saw us standing there and gave us some advise on what to do and where to go. From then on the fun began, found the Lido deck, some great food and a deck chair. When we finally decided to find our room it could not have been better. Nice and clean, fresh smelling and what would become a great view.

This was our first cruise and we did have a learning curve, we had breakfast lunch and dinner in both the buffet and dinning rooms. We don't drink but soft drinks came quickly from the bars. The staff; once they introduced themselves; never for got our names or what we preferred. BETTER STAFF THEN ANY RESORT WE HAVE STAYED AT. Advise for first time cruisers, relax, enjoy yourself, experience what you can. Stay loose.
