This was my first cruise and I was a bit apprehensive about going on one, but am I glad that I did! I guess I was most impressed by cleanliness of the ship, the great staff, and how well organized it was as well as all the fun we had on and off the ship. The boat was spotless. There was never a dirty bathroom, all the eating areas were clean, the common areas were updated and well maintained. The staff was always busy cleaning and maintaining the ship. Every staff member we talked to was friendly and helpful! They acted like they were truly there to make sure we were taken care of and happy. They were energetic, hard working, and fun! Everything was well organized. The embarkation, disembarkation, and the port excursions went smoothly and there were rarely any lines. We ate at all the different restaurants and had no complaints. The food was good and there was a nice variety. We loved the little dances that the waiting staff performed at the evening meals. They made it really fun and festive. Our rooms on level 4 were just right and the floor we stayed on was quiet. The beds were surprisingly very, very comfortable! We had a room in the back of the ship with a window. There was plenty of room and the bathrooms were nice. If there was anything to be changed, it would be to have better signs leading to the restrooms in the common areas. They were a bit tricky to find. We had a great time and made many memories. It's a great way to have a vacation when there are several families traveling together. I'll will go again!

Impressive!
