Review summary

I thought it was a nice cruise. The ship has good staff who try hard. I'll be doing the same itinerary twice next year on Grandeur. If you want a nice short break, it may be for you.

Embarkation

I thought they did well considering they were trying to check in 2,000 people in 2 hours.

Windjammer Marketplace

I thought it had good food and, I never had a problem finding a seat. Also, all the Freestyle machines worked.

Day Spa and Fitness Center

3 out of 5

I used the fitness center 3 days. I found the sensors didn't work properly on 2 of 3 lifecycles machines. This was annoying.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
My room steward did a excellent job. Also, the concierge and waiting staff in the Diamond Lounge were excellent. After 1 day, they remembered what I drank.

Ship tip

Don't expect all the bangs and whistles you see on the bigger ships.

Ports of call

Baltimore, Maryland

5 out of 5
Convenient to get to if you live in the area. I arrived there in less than an hour. I didn't do any excursions.

King's Wharf, Bermuda

5 out of 5
Lots of shops and a nice pub called The Frog and Onion which brews their own beers and ales on site. Warning! It is pricey. Excursion wise, I did the Lighthouse, Pink Sands and Shopping tour. It was nice. You got 45 minutes to shop in Hamilton. You got to see the Gibbs Lighthouse. The tour put us in taxis so, we had a small group and the taxi driver was our guide. He was very knowledgeable.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
I think they tried again though there things they couldn't forsee such as just 2 customs officers checking passports. Also, they needed a tugboat to help get the ship to the pier (I saw it).
