Review Summary

It was kept very clean. It was somewhat confusing getting to the Paris dining room, Oxford lounge and internet area. You have to walk down deck 5, then take stairs down to these areas. On deck 9, the outside LED screen volume was way too loud, especially at breakfast. We noticed an unpleasant bathroom smell at certain times near the photo pickup area.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Could not complain about the food at all; very good. We were disappointed in the long lines for lunch on deck 9; we chose different places because of it - either the hotdog/burger line, pizza or chinese.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The shows after dinner were outstanding - live band, excellent singers and dancers. Was annoyed they charged extra if you wanted to participate in an exercise class like pilates and the health seminars were really a sales pitch for detox pills.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5

The bus tour was average, but without it, we wouldn't have known what to look for. Saw location of the reversing river, but it was low tide. Guide explained what happens well. She was very pleasant and knew her stuff. Learned history of the area.
Don't Miss: reversing tide

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Took tour on a new double decker bus but the speaker system kept cutting out, so we missed information. Should have been longer stop at Peggy's Cove for the price. 1 hour to cove, 1 hour at cove, 1 hour back. Not enough time to see things.
Don't Miss: Peggy's Cove

Pros: the food
