We were just on this ship doing the Baltics in July and changed from the Pearl out of Tampa over T-giving. The embarkation was less than could be desired. It took almost an hour to go from the hotel to the port because of construction about 2 miles away, and then it was like nobody was expecting us when we finally got inside to check in. Thank goodness for priority. In July we had an Oceanview but this time upgraded to a Balcony and ended up with a room that seemed like a hall they had converted to a room. The balcony could not be used by two people at the same time unless we wanted to look at each other. The ship had an issue with people getting sick and tried to handle it as best as they could, taking away the salt and pepper shakers and menus. The dining was amazing, 4 specialty and then everything else except for the buffet. All of the staff on the ship was great. After 3 cruises on this class we really do like the Malting bar. Not sure why they removed the smoking area right outside the bar. Not sure why the Next people felt the need to call 4 times. Do to previous issues with them we don't even say hello to them.

Great time out of the Big Easy
