Boarding in San Juan was very smooth. We were in time for Lunch so we headed up to eat. It seemed very confusing with the food stations instead of a buffet line. After a few days we got used to it and I think it is much better than waiting in long lines. The trick is to look around and decide what you would like and then go back and get it.
That way everything does not cool off before you get back to your table. The food at the evening meal in the dining room was very good but the choices were not wonderful. Our Waiter was excellent but some of the people in our group did not have excellent service. Our trip had us in a different port every day. It was a little bit to much. I could have used a few more sea days. We really enjoyed the ship . It is beautiful. Our cabin was on deck 8 with a verandah. That is the only way we go. What a beautiful view, day and night. The entertainment was very good. Overall we had a great trip and would travel on this ship again.
