Very nice review covering the key areas in a very helpful way. One note on the bad weather experience is that the Atlantic Ocean can be nasty at times throughout the year. We always try to alert cruisers to this for cruises from the Mid Atlantic and for Eastern and Southern Caribbean cruises. Not that it should stop you, but if you have the expectation of Atlantic Ocean weather, it wont be a big disappointment. Today's well appointed ships have the variety of activities and entertainment to account for some outside event limitations, but don't seem to provide this expectation setting information.

I have done 2 cruises out of Jersey, and I remember it being crowded, but we left my friends house early to try and give us plenty of time. Glad to hear the positive feedback regarding the dining. I have seen many not happy with the set up.
