I got a fairly good discount on this cruise through the company I work for so this was a good deal as far as vacations go. I took this cruise with my boyfriend and it was our first cruise. The cruise ship itself was ok, but the vacation was very nice and relaxing.
Embarkation: We arrived around 11:30 and were on the ship no later than 12:15. It was pretty easy. We got on the ship, had lunch, took a tour of the spa, and headed to our cabins at 1:30. The cabins weren't at 1:30, but soon after.
Spa: The spa is nice, though I think it is overpriced. We booked a couples hot stone massage, which they did not give us. We received the regular couples massage, but when they brought the receipt they changed the price. I know it was booked correctly because when we got the final bill it said hot stone massage. I was disappointed as they did not apologize, but at least they fixed the price.
