    Overall good experience on the cruise. Food good, and the chicken flavor was excellent. Only negative was inaccurate directions on where the cruise was. Also, wrong address was provided in the reminder emails. They missed the “Christopher” from the address, which cost me about 30 minutes of delay and stress looking for the ship. Further, when clicking on the link for directions, it took me to the other side of the pier. I did provide this feedback to the guide company, so hopefully no one has to experience this ever again. If it weren’t for this issue, I would have given 4 stars.
