We departed Long Beach terminal and though the line took approx. 1hr to process us, it was okay as we were able to visit with other folks in line.
We found the common area's of the ship very clean, which we appreciated. Our balcony room was comfortable and clean.
The gym was great with lots of cardio equipment and adequate free weights with a seperate room for stretching etc. The gym was also kept very clean.
We really enjoyed our evening dining experience thanks in large part to our team of waiters who were first class!
With respect to weather as we sailed to Hawaii, we had hoped for far more warmth and sunshine. We had lots of wind and found we only had one good day going over to suntan. Wind one day fluctuated between 80-105km/h throughout the night.
The return portion of the cruise also had lots of wind and cool weather daily, definitely not great for suntanning on the shipdeck.
Our balcony cabin was clean/adequate but dated.
