Sail Date: Sep 2015
Cabin: Interior

I live in Fort Myers, FL so the drive over to Miami is only about 2 1/2 hours for me. For that reason we booked this as a fun, family weekend getaway and an opportunity to take our 7 year old son on his first cruise that didn't break the bank.

I had read about Faster to the Fun and we decided to purchase it. Overall I believe it was well worth it. My husband timed from the moment we stepped into the terminal to the moment we stepped on the cruise. It was 26 minutes. His brother had waited in line for over an hour and a half when he had gone on the same cruise. Also, when we disembarked, there was a special meeting place for the Faster to the Fun cruisers and we were on the interstate driving home by 9:30 am. It also comes with priority tenders in ports that require this but we didn't have a port that they needed to tender on so we didn't get to experience that part. I will definitely purchase this again on our next cruise (May 2016).

The cabin was very clean and comfortable and quite (R242). I did not have a single complaint about it at all. We got our towel animals every day and the cabin crew made sure they put our pull-down bunk away every morning after we left the cabin and it was down waiting for bedtime while we were at dinner every night.

We had a very easy time finding the parking deck and getting on the ship!
