Originally meant to sail on her inaugural sailings from Europe in Aug 2020, cancelled due to construction delays, followed by the pandemic the family was finally able to sail.

Embarkation: The terminal is large enough to keep everyone moving. Many people still showed up before their designated times which cause the port staff to have to dedicate more people to directing people to appropriate lines and repeating why someone can't board at this time. We had 1-130pm embark time, we arrived at one and was onboard at 2.

Muster: Had C6 which is the first muster station you see when boarding and took care of it straight away.

Cabin Review

Had a cove balcony 5327, port side, under Grand Central. The hallways are wider, the room is thinner, and the balcony didn't feel as deep as previous ships coves. Heard minimal to no noise from Grand Central stage. Doors are fairly thick and would need to open them to hear any announcements as none were made directly in the cabin.

Bathrooms are nice but may be a challenge for larger individuals.

This cabin the beds are by the window. Rossan was our cabin attendant and provided a pleasant experience.
