Review summary

The destinations were nice, the ship in excellent condition. The state rooms are very nice. The food Service I felt warrants some attention. The room service options do not include hot breakfast items unless you want to pay extra (like we couldn't go get warm items from the buffet for free). The specialty restaurants charge even more for some menu items. If you're already paying for a specialty restaurant, whatever is on the menu is what you should be able to get without an extra, extra charge. High speed internet was excellent (unlimited data for two devices @ $20.00 a day). The shows and entertainment were nice and well managed. If you want to attend the shows make sure and book them in advance, the waitlist lines on the ship were quite long. We were new to cruising when we took this cruise but really enjoyed it. If your destination is the Caribbean from Bayonne, be prepared for several days at sea each way. If I was to do this again, I would likely go from Ft. Lauderdale.  But overall the experience was great. You can't go wrong with this cruise.

Careful with the specialty restaurants, they charge even more for some in addition to the charge to dine there.

Wonderful cabin. on the higher floors and buffered from the public space (restaurants etc...) on the top deck by one floor of rooms. It's not a far walk from the elevators but not so close you hear all the foot traffic from them. You tend to feel a little more back and forth sway on the higher floors in rough seas but I would book this room again.
