We've previously cruised on Carnival, Princess and Celebrity. Our last two Celebrity cruises spoiled us for any other line, I am afraid to say.
We took this cruise because we live 1.5 hours away from Baltimore, my boyfriend hates to fly (I love flying) and it stopped in Charleston where my son is stationed in the military.
We were the cruise after a norovirus breakout and embarkation was a nightmare. We got to the port later (1pm) thinking that the rush was over and between the traffic in the parking lot and the line in the port, didn't get onboard until 3:15pm. By then the muster drill had started so we were not allowed to go to our rooms to drop off our bags. Yes we sent our big suitcases with the luggage cart but we had our wine/cooler/medical equipment/medication/emergency stuff on us and we had to drag it to the muster station after dragging in through the lines for two hours.
