I've bid (and will know today if I won) on the 15 day cruise from Long Beach(LA) to Miami through the Panama Canal. Has anyone done this cruise? Does it leave from LA Pier or the Long Beach pier, I've read conflicting things. I've only done 7 day cruises so don't know what to expect except double the fun and relaxation! Are there 4 formal nights? Anything special I need to know?
Also, the ship, It seems it goes from an OV to suites with no inbetween cabins. What's up with this? I've never been on Ecstasy before, do they not have just regular cabins with balconies?
