After reading all the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. So lets start from when you first arrive. The port at Mobile was super easy. We pulled our car right up, they took our luggage. After parking the car (also seamless) we got in line for security. The line was substantial! But even with a huge line, we were to the check in desk in 10-15 minutes. We were checked in and through security in another 10 minutes. Keep in mind that we had 8 passengers and two separate rooms. Not an issue at all. Lets talk about the staterooms. We had two rooms on the main deck (deck 5). They were small and dated but comfortable. The staff did an incredible job keeping the room in the state that we needed it. They would put the pull out beds away in the morning while we were at breakfast and have them ready to go at night.
Lets talk about Mikey. Wow what a cruise director!! This guy was everywhere and with great enthusiasm. At least 10 outfit changes a day. I can not state enough how great this guy was. I realize that all cruise directors are high energy but Mikey is top notch. He is worth going on this cruise for. Seriously.
The food was mediocre. Not hot when it should be and not cold when it should be. Nothing tasted terrible but nothing was really amazing. But really the free ice cream was great and so was the 24 hour pizza. You will not go hungry.
