Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: Ship was beautiful, well maintained and clean, plenty of activities. Staff was excellent at dinner and housekeeping for our stateroom. Schooner Bar...bit disappointing. Waited forever before someone noticed we had even sat down.
Cons: Food in the Windjammer...it was cafeteria quality. Tides 2nd seating was marginally better if you went with the "Chef's recommendation.
