A Great Time

Sail Date: November 01, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This is the second time on this ship. Liked it the first time, loved it the second time. First time we hit a children's vacation week so this was a little tough to take but it had nothing to do with the ship. We were on a Crown and Anchor cruise this time and it was delightful.
There were many free activities and lectures and all were good.
Food and service is fabulous on this ship. Liked the Windjammer Cafe and the dining room. We did My Time Dining both times and liked this.
We had a lovely balcony room.
This ship sort of sticks to the 2 shows a night theme and you have to plan your dining accordingly. We missed a few shows because of longer than anticipated dining. Shows were enjoyable.
Do not miss ice skating show. It is great.
Would go on this ship again in a heartbeat.
There is nothing not to like on this ship

Pros: Food and service, activities, ports visited, leaving from NJ.

Cons: Promenade deck is more like a hotel than a ship but this is a personal preference thing.
