Our embarkation port was Houston (Bayport). It's about 60 to 90 minutes depending on traffic, from the airport to cruise terminal. We drive our car car and park on site for about $100/wk. safe gated area. Embarkation is very efficient. Usually no long lines. Very informal boarding. No officers in site. Mostly security who are very quick about scanning cards.
We did not disembark except at mahagony bay. Nice chair lift ride to the beach. There is a fee.
Food on board was average cruise fare. With the exception of breakfast at Sabitinis each morning. (A suite perk) varied menu and well prepared. The steak house was also very nice. Although too much food. Bar service at crooners was very good. Ask for an Amalfi Collins.
Ample storage space. Located in quiet area of deck 6. Private hallway insulates sound. Near atrium and service desk. The room is lovely just not being maintained appropriately.
Very nice seafood at Monument Inn about 15 minutes from cruise terminal. We always have lunch here before boarding.281 479 1521
