Started my journey by driving to Ft Lauderdale on Friday before the cruise. Stayed at the Hampton Inn Cruise Port North. Great hotel for cruising out of Miami or Fort Lauderdale.They have a shuttle to Miami now and parking at hotel.. Left on Satuarday morning for parking in Miami. It took about thirty minutes to get to Safe cruise Parking lot. Easy to find and good shuttle service.Took about fifteen minutes from the lot to the ship.
Arrived at ship about 1100 am for an 1130 check in time. Went thru the line more quickly than ever before. By 1130 I was already on the ship and in the Lido eating. Looked like half the ship was already there. As priority I had left my bag in the room.My key was not there yet , but room was open. Key was put in box around noon.
Around 4 pm we has muster drill. The might have been the worst part of the trip. It was outside and took around thirty minutes.
Cabin had an extended balcony. Had a lounge chair and two chairs and small table. Safe was kind needing a swipe to open or close.
Room had a working fridge. Couch and chair. Normal bathroom. Three closets. noral dresser drawers. Plenty of storage
