After digging through pictures and my personal travel log, I decided it was fair to write a review for this cruise.  My husband and I traveled together, driving from Boston down to NJ. We left our car at the pier and walked right onboard.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our steward and table staff made this cruise great. People were attentive and always referred to us by name.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Nice ship with a bit of wear and tear, but nothing more than was expected. We do like the center main street area.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nothing special about the inside cabin.

Ship Tip

The Explorer Lounge is a nice place to get away to a quiet spot for reading or checking the Internet.
