Review Summary

So sad very sad honeymoon trip. The ship was a tacky mess. Mirrors everywhere, ugly plastic fixtures, obscene carpeting with stains, etc. So many terrible smells.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Lots of mediocre food, disguised as fancy. Nothing was QUALITY. We sustained ourselves on grilled cheese sandwiches the entire trip.

Embarrassing! The hairy chest contest was something out of fiction. Kept pinching myself -- am i really, truly, witnessing such an offense? I really truly did. Watched a 'family friendly' magic show -- lots of skin and ladies dancing in thong underwear.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff (housekeeping, dining) was incredible. Very hardworking, genuine, professional and attentive. The crew, however, was falsely upbeat and barraged us with unnecessary announcements.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
The size and layout were fine. The decor was cheap and tacky.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Promised a private balcony -- but received a window overlooking a public balcony. We couldn't even access from our floor -- had to go up one floor and back down to enjoy it. Also - no chairs on the deck. We could only stand until we got tired. Very small stateroom. Shower drainage gurgled for hours after we showered. The staff responsible for maintaining our room was very kind, professional and attentive.

Ports Of Call

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Wonderful! Again, did a self guided walking tour. Picked up a fun souvenir at the fantastic "Oddjects" in Halfiax then got a fantastic haircut from Melissa at the incredible Alicia Melanson salon. Authentic poutine from a foodcart and coffee on a rooftop deck and a lovely shop whose name we've forgotten.

Saint John, New Brunswick

5 out of 5
We walked around and enjoyed beautiful old architecture. Stopped in "The Feel Good Store" -- a yoga shop with amazing, delicious tea. Had breakfast at a local diner with a sassy waitress, just what you would have expected.

Pros: Getting off of the ship

Cons: Dirty & tacky boat, disgusting food
