My cruise was to Canada and after we left New York the weather turned cold and foggy until we got back to New York. This limited sunning and pool activity for all but the most intrepid, especially since the pools were kept at 64 degrees and it was just about that outdoors. There was very little to do for much of the day at sea or when you returned from shore excursions. Many cruise ships have a lot more choices than twice a day bingo, towel folding, or art auctions, just to mention the things to do. There were only movies one day, while we were in port. It was almost sad to see people desperate to shop in the onboard shops for lack of anything else to do. The food was plentiful, but not memorable. At breakfast, the scrambled eggs were "vat" eggs, even in the dining room, and hardly warm. The toast is served cold. At the Captain's reception, food was served, but it was insufficient for the number of people there. A redeeming factor was the 24 hour pizza station. The time we had reserved for dinner was not what we were scheduled for when we arrived. There were many children on the cruise. The revue shows in the evening were very good. Although late night dancing was on the schedule, there was never anyone in the room or dancing when we were there, so we didn't stay either.

The review shows were excellent. The comedien on the last night was lacking. The other choices were minimal.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Everyone was congenial and friendly, but they didn't have much to offer. For example, if you wanted extra salad dressing at dinner, it took 10 minutes to get.

It was foggy, rainy and cold. You don't need to take a tour if you want to see the old city, you can walk just about everywhere.
Don't Miss: There isn't one.

Pros: The ship was exceptionally clean

Cons: There are long lines for absolutely everything from when you get on to when you leave.
