Maybe it is time for a change in cruise lines

Sail Date: January 25, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

They say the ship is a good part of the destination, it is if you have never sailed on it before, if you have, you want to do different things and that includes going to different ports. This cruise was rerouted due to weather and the ship was delayed coming back up to Port Liberty. We lost one day of the 12 days and were not reimbursed properly.  We went to the same old ports on previous cruises. If you are traveling with another couple who are a different point level then you , you will find you cannot do everything together. 

Other then several very great crew members we found others lacked courtesy and were always saying no to your requests. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Jr Suite is adequate and decent value for the price., cabin attendant was great. keep in mind the way this ship is set up Jr Suite gets you very little in way of amenities the way the larger suites are given. Even being a Diamond plus doesn't do much for you any longer
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Cruise was rerouted and ended up going to same ports as last trip This was due to weather but the way it was rerouted left very little time in the ports we did go to
Onboard Activities
Enjoyed most shows but seating is difficult
Service and Staff
Windjammer manager and his wife. Some others were good some were downright nasty
Food and Dining
some restaurants were good others ok some disappointing
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
We were unaware that the Bayonne bridge is closed for repairs and had to g o the long way around. Allow a couple of hours extra time as the road into the port is inadequate and gets very backed up
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
They have done a lot to improve this stop


Make sure every meal and show are booked well in advance. They will tell you everything is booked and then you go to a restaurant and it is empty
