Food and Dining
The London Dining room was amazing! We loved having the same wait staff, and assigned (private) table. The staff was attentive, friendly, and entertaining.
Children's Programs
My kids didn't feel like participating. They preferred to play mini golf with us, which isn't a bad thing!
Ship Quality
Really large ship, clean, cool glass elevator
But too confusing trying to get to the Paris Dining Room
Cabin / Stateroom
We are so happy that we upgraded to the 10th floor Panorama deck (from the 2nd floor). We had a balcony, and our room was quiet, and seconds away from the pool and a quick walk to the buffet. We looked forward to our towel animals at night.
Service and Staff
Awesome magic show with very sexy dancers- (a little much for a family show-- but it just shows how versatile the dancers are: the night before the show was wholesome and almost "Disney-esque.")
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Halifax is beautiful, quiet, and clean. It was unseasonably hot and humid, so we walked around at the harbor and shops, and then went back to the pool!
Saint John, New Brunswick
Bay of Fundy and Village of St. Marin was very good (5 hrs). Included lunch (seafood chowder), walking on the beach (rock, ocean floor when the tide is out). Interesting to the kids.
