Review summary

The shore excursions, the food, the service, the facility - all top notch. Wonderful cruise. Our dinner at 150 Central Park rivals any of the finest dining we've experienced anywhere.  Only two areas of improvement - we paid $150 for terrible, intermittent wi-fi on 2 devices (better not to offer it at all, RC) and the coffee was inexplicably horrible, like drinking an ashtray. But everything else was lovely, the trip of a lifetime.

Ocean's Aria was breathtaking. Blue Planet was strange. Stand up comedy was good.

Ship tip

Best breakfast is the Park Cafe. Stay on the ship for Nassau, it is all kitschy tourist stuff. The Kayak/hike/snorkel excursion we got through was one of the high points. Get the details on the dress code ahead of time, we were embarrassed by the wait staff for being under dressed.
