It's a fun trip ... But a bit short. Great for families ... lots of kids on board. Don't count on computers to entertain ... wifi = $$$ ... But there is plenty to do and enjoy. Not a big recommend for singles ... Or mature crowd looking for a quiet and relaxed time.

There are a few surprises for the first time cruiser (it was our first time) there are a lot of hidden costs ... Be prepared to spend! You are constantly offered products and services "at an additional cost". Unless your a big drinker ... Drink package is a waste. Yeah that's right no drinks included even a soda is an added cost.

Time in Burmuda was way too short ... With little to no advice from cruise ... Other than "additional cost" excursions. Would have liked some advice on great place to eat or a must see beach, but all we got was ... For an additional cost you can go on this tour ....
Ship Quality
Felt safe
Food and Dining
Plenty of food ... But I'm not big on buffets
Cabin / Stateroom
It was nice and clean ... A bit tight ... But that was expected on boat
Service and Staff
Excellent service all around
Plenty to do ... If you want to
Children's Programs
Teens struggled to find a fit right for them
Destinations and Excursions
Ok ... But all the touristy stuff ...
Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
Easy process ... Beats the airport!


Figure out the lay if the land (boat) quickly. Make sure you check the activities sheet daily and plan your activities ... You'll miss out. Breakfast and lunch doesn't have to be a buffet check out main dinning halls ... Buffets are great if you like buffets. Makes sure to look at all sides buffet.
