Background Information—we are a young couple, 29-year-old wife and 33-year-old husband. We live in Arkansas and this is our second cruise, the first on another cruise line.
Embarkation—went very smoothly. We got to the pier from the airport around 11, waited in the VIP lounge until 11:45 when the ship was cleared, and then we were the first ones on board! After some initial confusion (our room was 1212 but on the 11th floor, and this confused some crew members) we were in our beautiful mini-suite.
Stateroom/Service—in a word: WONDERFUL! We had the 2 BEST stewards on the entire boat, I'm sure. Alma and Mochamad. On the first day Alma memorized all of our names and never failed to greet everyone in the hallway with a cheerful greeting. Mochamad was a bit shyer but definitely went out of his way to serve. On our last cruise we never even saw our steward, much less had them greet us. This time we always had ice and ended up with 5 towel animals through the cruise.
