Review summary

If I had known, we would be missing our last two ports (and would be spending the days at sea), I would have got off the ship in Canada and found my way home. My health is most important to me and spending 36 hours sick in bed was not my decision - it was made by the cruiseline. I saw people with their suitcases leaving our ship in Canada, didn't know then, they were making a great decision.

Went smoothly

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining rooms were crowded with people were just sitting drinking their morning coffee or playing cards. The dining tables should be for people looking to sit and eat a meal. Food could have been better...got tired of eating just cakes and dry cookies for dessert.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Mini golf and watching entertainment was fun. Rope course was too windy.

No problems, good size for two people and kept very clean

Ship tip

Watch out for storms and if you are told of pending storms get off the ship and fly home. Better to miss half of the cruise than to be stuck on a ship sick in bed for 36 hours.

Ports of call

Brooklyn, New York
