Review summary

The ship is beautiful, but the art - spectacular! Every piece from photographs, to paintings, to carvings and amazing hanging metal sculptures were a joy to behold. Food was good, but not outstanding. Entertainment was very enjoyable. Lots of variety. Fun for everyone. 

     Our only complaint is the teeny, tine room 'divider' that wasn't. Approx.18" from the wall when extended, it did not portend to divide the room.  It was something we looked for before booking ( and passing up another line that was honest enough to say they had NONE), since we were sharing tbe room with our adult, handicapped son.  Obviously the cruise lines would rather sell another stateroom, but in our particular case, it wasn't something we felt comfortable doing.

Food and Dining

We opted for Dine Anytime, which turned out to be Anytime they chose to seat us. We tried to eat at 7:00, but 3 times could only east @ 5:45. We at in the Windjammer - their cafeteria.

Cabin / Stateroom

The width of the privacy curtain is exactly as shown in this photo. On our last cruise, it stretched across the width of the room, to give PRIVACY.

Ship tip

If you can choose your dinner time in advance -do it. The cruise line ends up adding all of the "Gratuities" onto your bill at the end anyway.

Ports of call

Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey
