My grandmother is a seasoned cruiser. This is the second time she decided to take me on a cruise, my first being the Carnival Destiny in 8/04. We flew in from New York on the day of with our group from church. The embarkation process from Seattle was very simple and easy to me. I felt that the lines weren't that long seeing the amount of passengers that were being taken in.

We found the ship to be very clean (cleaner than the Destiny) and even has these convenient motion sensitive hand sanitizer dispensers which the helpful staff encourage you to use while on board.

Room- We found our room very easily after helping some of the elderly ladies from church find theirs. When we found our room we realized that we were "driving the ship" as my grandmother put it. The walk from the room to the elevator is especially long if you use the mid-ship elevators. Everything was quite neat and the room was spacious. The decor is a little blah but ... They provide a shower and toilet but I don't believe they gave us simple products such as toothpaste. Soap and a generic shampoo and conditioner were provided. I've heard others compare it to Herbal Essences product. Ship- Was very nice. It had an Asian decor from when it was being run as the "Superstar Leo." They have these hidden Karaoke lounges near "the Bund" inside of which you can see autographed pictures from what i guess are famous Asian celebrities. The boat isn't as flashy as Carnivals decor but...
