Thank you for your info on the ship. It does sound somewhat different than our Carnival cruises. We have booked the Holiday Inn Express for the night before our cruise. What is the best way to get to the ship on cruise day, and the cost? We really feel like newbies here ,feeling like it's our first cruise . DW is very excited and is planning already. Our niece will be joining us her first cruise. Certainly hope we made the right choice. Happy cruising.
