Tomson2,

You will love this cruise. In my opinion, I think it is a good one as a starter. I have recomended this to some people I know who get motion sick. The cruise more or less sticks to the coastline, so it is a great one to get you started.

We did this cruise in November 2011 and are doing it again, on the same cruise as you - in 12 days time! Woohoo.

I am sure you will find there will be alot of helpful people, there will be plenty of signs and lots of people pointing you in the right direction.

Well they've always got "excellent" from me and DW on our survey forms.

Checking in with the wonderful folks at OPT is a pleasure, particularly compared with airport check-in. Having a great check-in experience before boarding the ship always gets the cruise off to a great start.

Will have to get names next time.
