Check in at the port was complicated as there were many cruisers on the previous sailing still trying to leave as new passengers were arriving. Overall, once we were parked, the rest of the check-in went quickly. We were onboard by 11:15am.
We had an interior room located in the forward part of the ship on deck 11. The room was clean, everything worked, and very quiet. Rarely did we hear any neighbors. In general, the passengers onboard this particular cruise were some of the most polite I have met. I think everyone tried to be considerate of each other, i.e. no door slamming or shouting in the halls. Elevators in the front of the ship were readily available and again passengers held the doors to ensure you could catch one.
During one of the cruise lectures, it was mentioned that the ship was at 100% capacity. We met multiple fellow cruisers who were on this ship in May and June and they said it was more like 70% compared to what they experienced a few months ago. I never had any significant waits for food, slides, elevators, except when I needed customer service.
Great cabin, everything worked and was clean. Beds were good because we liked firm mattresses. Cabin Steward had ice for us both morning and night per our request. We keep a clean cabin in general and he made sure it was sanitized and cleaned with towel figures on certain nights.
Due to docking and embarkation times, very little time is available for anything beyond the space centers. During our cruise there was an accident on the way to Orlando. They only had about 35 minutes at their arrival to do an activity before they had to travel back. We stayed onboard the ship since we have visited this port before.
Great beaches, pools, and food.
We do our favorite local craft food inn and some light shopping. Maybe three hours off of the boat in general.
