Our private vow renewl ceremony on deck 8 aft on the Waterfront.

We decided to try an extended cruise after many 7 day cruises on Carnival and Norwegian. This 9 day cruise turned out to be perfect for us and was also a perfect experience for our first time cruising firends.

The cruise started with 2 days at sea which allowed us to have a once in a lifetime private vow renewal ceremony performed just before sunset by cruise director Vincent. We want to say a special "Thank You" to Dela our special services coordinator for creating such a unique venue for our service. She was able to close off the entire starboard aft corner of deck 8 the Waterfront deck for our ceremony. This meant we could exchange our vows in front of the friends who had joined us and then celebrate with a special cake and champaign while having the ships professional photographer Zoe create some amazing sunset images for us to cherish forever.

Vincent not only made our service one to remember but his famous "I'll Sea Ya, When I Sea Ya!" became our mantra as our paths crossed several times throught to the week. The same was true of Dela as she was always around on different days to talk about the days activities and make sure we were enjoying our trip.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MA

We loved our mini-suite although the main space seamed a little smaller than other ships the oversized bathroom more than made up for it. The bathroom included a large double vanity and large walk in shower with massaging body jets.

The patio space was narrow but I wasn't out there to dance so it worked out well for our trip. We found that you could have the staff open a connection gate to expand patio space to two cabins if you were traveling with family or friends in the next cabin.
