This was our first cruise, and hope it isn't our last. The ship was beautiful. We were spoiled everyday by staff.....from the ones that cleaned our room, to those that served our meals. All were extremely cheerful, friendly, and helpful. It was easy for first timers to get on and off at the beginning and all the ports we stopped at. All staff were very helpful to the passengers that got lost almost everyday! We were on the Gaither Homecoming Cruise, the music and entertainment were awesome. What a Blessing! Our 'mail' everyday kept us informed about all the activities for each day. We met some wonderful people that will be friends forever. Very nice to go on a trip with Christian people. A room with a window or balcony would be nice, but we had ample time and opportunity to go out on deck. Deck 3 was covered and went all around the ship, so we could walk for exercise or just look at the view. It was amazingly easy to get to our shore excursions and back on the ship, guides were funny and full of history and information. Very simple to disembark and get to our next destination.

So Much FUN!

Cabin Review

Large Interior Stateroom
Cabin J 1851
Plenty large enough for two people, and always kept clean. Lots of storage space and the bathroom was great. So much easier to use the mirrors than any Motel we have ever been in. I can't see at all without my glasses, and this was wonderful. We could unpack our belongings and feel like we were at home, without the responsibilities! Seldom heard any outside noise. Very comfortable.
