Departing from New Orleans was interesting as I had no idea how far the port actually was from the ocean. Our balcony cabin had plenty of room to spread out and also for storage. Dining room food was generally very good and the service was top notch. I particularly liked Guy’ Burger Joint (LOVE their fries) and also the BBQ place (I don’t recall the name.) The buffet, especially at breakfast, was really good—really enjoyed the custom omelet station. On sea days the pool area was very crowded and sometimes it was hard to find a place to sit. Entertainment was pretty good, but it would have been nice to have had more options for activities during the day. Unfortunately, the hot tub we visited wasn’t working well. The water was only lukewarm and so with the wind on the deck, it made for a chilly (and pretty unfun) experience. All in all, a pleasant cruise and a relaxing week.

Good value!
