This cruise got off to a rocky start with a delayed boarding due to Norovirus being on board the 2 cruises previous to ours. But it was worth the wait of a delayed 4 hour board because it seemed to clean up the nasty bug. After 3 days we were release from our Code Red.
Our cabin was great as we splurge and purchased a mini-suite this time. (D407) Excellent room with plenty of space and storage area. Never used all of it. Having a tub/shower combo is great. Extra seating area makes a lot of difference when you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the crowds. We definitely enjoyed it. Not sure if I like the completely open balcony or not though.
Our room steward, Sandie, was excellent. He always asked it everything was ok. Never wanted for anything and room was always kept clean and refreshed. He even left me a little gift the last evening we where on board. Such a special extra touch is always nice.
