The experience was great. Nice having a new ship on the west coast. The food was better than a recent cruise on the Miracle and the activities were nice. The beds were much more comfortable than the Miracle as well (I know that the Miracle is going in for dry dock shortly, but... those beds gave us a terrible back ache). The ship is definitely big, but it doesn't really affect wait times except for elevators. Other than waiting for the elevators, the queues were fairly manageable and never seemed to be a problem. The skyride and the ropes course were a nice new touch. The embarkation and debarkation process definitely feels smoother than it was while they were doing construction in Long Beach and it was definitely a better experience than in years past. It's nice to know that this ship will be here long term for the seven day cruises and that we'll be able to enjoy all of the nice add-ons for this ship for years to come.

Great experience on a new ship
