We chose this cruise to experience the new ship, not for the iteniery.
Embarcation for Suite and Zenith guests was excellent and almost a great way to start the cruise. We were in a separate lounge area and staff came around quickly to our seats and quickly and easily checked us in. However, instead of being escorted onto the ship, we proceeded to board with the many many others and were shuffled into the lobby to fend for ourselves. No one knew where to go or how to get there. It was mass confusion.
A great improvement, however, was that once we found how to get to our Suite, you got your key card at the Stateroom door and were allowed to leave your carry on baggage in your room before it was cleaned and done. You were free then to wander and explore the ship without worrying about your carry ons.
