Sail Date: Feb 2022
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

The start of our cruise was extremely easy. We all tested at the pier which was well organized. Only about 30 people in a group. Once your test is negative you get to check in for your cruise. Took about 1hour for everything. No more Muster drill. You have to watch a video and once on board you fine your muster station and they sign you off. Very easy.

The ship was only at 730 capacity. We were a group of 6 with 3 inside rooms. We were all upgraded for a balcony room. And we were treated like gold. All staff was wonderful. The only issue we had was with customer service desk. There was people smoking weed on the balcony near our room. I dont care if you smoke weed but I do not want to smell it when I'm sitting out on my balcony. And the rule is no smoking on balconies. The customer service desk was useless. They finally offered us to move to another room with 3 days left. They said to keep our stuff in our room and just sleep in the other room. I was dumb founded by that request.

All the shows on this cruise are fantastic. The Sonota music group is a worth listen to. they are fantastic.
