7 Night Canada/New England (Boston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 21, 2012

Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Ship was very clean, decor was beautiful and the food was very good. Got people on and off very quickly. Had a little problem with my luggage when we boarded. Boarded ship at 11:00 a.m. but my luggage did not reach our room until after 5:00 p.m. because they did not know where my luggage was. Went to security, luggage was not there, was told to ask my room attendant to help locate my luggage.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food in the Tides Dining room was very good\, service was wonderful. Windjammer food was also very good for breakfast and lunch\, did not go there for dinner.


5 out of 5
Entertainment was very good (shows). Cruise director Dennis Charles and Becky were excellent. Would have enjoyed more karaoke organization in the bar area. Although bands (Suave and Moses Trio) were excellent\, it got a little boring night after night. Would have been better with more of a variety. Some events like the Tango Buenos Aires in the Safari Club were too close in time proximity with first seating dinner\, so we were not able to participate.

Service and Staff

Sewer smell on the 7th floor hallway on the way to the Centrum. Movie theater was small\, seats uncomfortable.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Room was very clean\, our attendant Catcha was wonderful. Always had nice clean bed and towels. Rooms layout was a bit tight had to manuever around closet\, entrance door and bathroom.

Pros: Entertainment in the Coral Theater. Also Dennis Charles was a very good cruise director\, so was Becky. Dinner in the Tides was very good and our waiter (Nenad) and asst.. waiter (Irina) were very good and were very nice to everyone. Breakfast in the Windjammer was excellent..

Cons: Would have liked more things to do in the evening (karaoke\, games). Also not many food choices later in the evening. No pizza \, hot dog station or ice cream. Movie theatre was very small and seats were very uncomfortable. Certain parts of the 7th floor had a sewer smell.
