Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is beautiful, well taken care of, staterooms extremely nice and lots of things to do on board. They had an outside pool and an inside pool called the Solarium. The water in the indoor pool was saltwater. Very nice! Having the 2 pools were perferct because on the the trip to Bermuda the weather was nice and warm and sitting at the outdoor pool very relaxing with lots of sun. On the return trip to Boston we had quite the opposite weather--beautiful and sunny but extremely cold and windy. Everyone sunbathed in the Solarium with the sun shining through the covered top. Extremely relaxing! They had a rock climbing wall and miniature golf course that we found lots of fun! Overall a very nice vacation at a very reasonable price!!

Pros: There were so many things to do on board! The staff was extremely helpful.

Cons: There were a few snafus along the way during the cruise--asking for ice and never receiving it--lots of confusion at dinner time--but overall the cruise was wonderful.

Food and Dining
We tried to have dinner in the Chops Grille, but couldn't get reservations. We heard the food there was spectacular. The food in the regular restaurants was okay but not outstanding. Very salty! The Windjammer Cafe and buffet style food throughout the day and we really liked the variety they had here. One of the nicest things was a soft serve ice cream machine. People seemed to really like like this feature.
We especially liked the "Tango" performance. Much more than we expected. They were spectacular!!
Service and Staff
Our stateroom attendant made a swan and a duck out of the towels and put our sunglasses on them. Quite clever and really gave us a chuckle when returning to our room at night! Nice touch.
