Can't believe all the negative comments on here about this ship. Of course there were some imperfections, but overall, we had a great time doing something that a lot of people can't afford or are given the freedom to do. We are lucky in that regard.
Our embarkation was a snap, form curb to ship was @ 15 minutes. By the time we sailed there was a few inches of snow on the pool deck, hilarious ! Less than a day later we were in sunshine and decent temperatures, with fine weather for the remainder of the cruise.
Service: No complaints from us, most every staff member seemed pretty happy, greet them with a smile and a hello and they reciprocated in kind... had lots of laughs with room attendants on the 13th deck !
