first of all lets get a couple of things set right.... If you are worried about how long it take to get on a ship maybe you shouldnt get on the ship cause you wont have a good time.
The embarkation process was seemless, as in, we got to the port dropped off luggage and went through customs got on the ship. putting one foot in front of the other helped. We went down to Guy's Pig and Anchor which is open on first day and sea days, it was top quality!!
All food we had was great and the best part about cruising is if you didnt like something you can order something else.
spacious biggest cabin been in before, didnt spend much time on balcony by choice but it was nice and big too. 2 hanging closets and 1 with 4 shelves
we did external excurison of 27 falls cheaper than carnival and did more
water was amazing
interestingly bland port
