Cabin: Inside Stateroom

Just a background on our cruising: We have been cruising with HAL for the past five years. But have been looking for lines going out of the northeast. Our daughter and SIL gave us this trip and we accompanied them to New England and Canada. We have been in inside and veranda cabins, always went to Caribbean, departed out of NY and Port Everglades, ages 63 & 69, husband has slight mobility limitations.

Embarkation Port: It only took us 2 hours to drive to the port. What a joy rather than hours and layover times in airports. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the boarding was in Baltimore. We drove up to long term parking, paid by credit card ($15/day), pulled to area to drop off bags, and our children left us off at the line to go and check in. The line was getting long and so they spit the line (which put us up front in the new line) and we were on our way. We went through screening which was a breeze, didn't even have to take off our shoes. We had our sea pass done on line so all we had to do is show ID and passport. We were ushered to the gang way which was soooo long and the incline was rather steep. My husband has a cane and the gentleman asked if he wanted an easier way. No ramp, just got on the lower deck and road the elevator to the windjammer. Great experience!

Cabin: We had an inside cabin M (3541) on the 3rd deck, It was slightly smaller than our previous inside cabins; however, there was a small couch and loads of storage in the small space. The makeup vanity had three mirrors with the outside two having small shelves behind the mirror. My luggage is hard cases and didn't fit under the bed, but there was enough room in the closet to store them. Closet had plenty of hangers which is unusual. (I always bring extra wires.) Later I talked to someone who suggested to lift the bed and slide bags under. Never thought of that. Mattress was pretty comfortable. Pillows were good; not too flat and not too hard. Bedding was always looking clean and crisp. Lot's of cabinet space in the bathroom but I always bring my over the door shoe holder. The shower was really small but very doable. Water pressure and temperature was good. We never had any outside noise problem. We were close to the elevators that left us out at the theater entrance and the Windjammer. Our cabin steward, Karla, was great. Kept the cabin clean and always made sure that I had ice to keep my medication cool (no refrig in room).
