First, we live near Tampa so getting to the port and embarkation was a breeze. Valet park for the extra $15..totally worth it if you have several bags.
The ship was nice, a bit outdated. Our Jr Suite was OK. The private balcony was a must. The room had small sitting area, fridge, hair dryer, 2 bathrobes, small TV, plenty of hangers and storage. This was on deck 8. Deck 9 has the pool, solarium, late night food, etc etc. Lots of activity and you hear it all night from deck 8. Sleeping was impossible. Surprised I never read that on any other reviews of this ship.
We rent homes or condos when we vacation. We were concerned the ship would become confining and we would get bored. Well, that is exactly how we felt after completing the trip. There were activities that didn't suit our tastes on board.
