Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2014

Hubby and I have sailed to Mexico several times and have sailed to Alaska and Hawaii in addition to California Costal cruises. We are active seniors who live near the port of Los Angeles. We did not need a hotel so we drove to the port and parked there. Parking at present is $12 per day and there were lots of spaces when we arrived at noon. We were able to board immediately and our cabin was available then. The buffet was open for lunch. Food was plentiful but not quite as good quality as on previous cruises but I am a picky eater. Servers were very helpful and polite.

Our cabin was on Deck 10 interior and was nice and also quiet the entire trip. We were close to elevators and stairway (which I like to use) but not so close as to hear what little noise there was. The cabin has two large mirrors on opposite walls so it appears larger and was plenty large enough for us. Large closet and nice bathroom also. Our steward was friendly and courteous and kept the cabin nice at all times.

Dining rooms are nice and service was very good in each one we tried. We used the anytime dining and never had to wait for a table. We like joining others but if you wanted a table for two you may have to wait. I believe some dining rooms take reservations but we did not use that service. There was also an extra charge restaurant but we did not use it. Also there is a pizza restaurant in the Atrium, a pizza, hot dog, hamburger shop on deck, and a snack shop with soup, sandwiches, pastries in the Atrium. The Atrium is the center of the ship and on decks 5, 6, and 7. It's very pretty and they have musicians performing and have some passenger participation games there such as egg drop and Jenga. There is an ice cream shop on Deck 14 also.
