Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin: Porthole

Being my first cruise - I learned as the journey continued.

Note: My United seat was too small and chairs too close to my knees for me to get out.

I would have enjoyed my cruise more if I had "thought" about there being a doctor on the cruise.

Cabin Review


Cabin PT

I spoke about the room in my review above. The room I was moved to which was next to elevator was set up for handicapped and was much more comfortable for me since I did not have to remember to step up about six inches each time I went to restroom.

Also the bathroom was a lot bigger.

Port Reviews

New Orleans

This is where I got on ship. Actually a lot easier than I thought it would be.


There were about four HUGE ships docked at the same place. I did not get off the ship because I knew I would have to wait in line everywhere I went. Also, it looked like all industrial plants.


This is the port where I wished I HAD BEEN INFORMED THERE WAS A SHUTTLE. It was so very, very hot that it would have made a big difference in how much I enjoyed the port.
