This was a great cruise, we met many people on board through Cruise Critic and this made our trip exceptional. The activities on board were varied, so many people attended. I've never seen quite so many people at activities before. At the beginning of the cruise some of the staff were tired and were not as enthusiastic as usual but that picked up by mid voyage.
Embarkation was done in the convention center in SD. Have seen worse. We had no trouble. Still better than Carnival embarkation. Some people had trouble with the RCI arranged transport from the Airport but we have learned to plan that on our own in the past. We took a cab for $11.00 from the SAN airport to the ship.
The public areas on the ship are beautiful, but definitely are showing some wear in places, but still very nice.
