Room Type: Balcony

Overall, this cruise was at best mediocre.  The most impressive part of the cruise was the view of Statue of Liberty and Governor's Island when we set sail out of NYC.  Also, the staff and crew members were friendly, and the food was very good (not too salty).  Otherwise, entertainment was minimal, shows were not attractive, cleanliness was so-so (found hair in our towels and bedsheets), and ports of call were rundown and unpleasant.  Would I go on this cruise again?  No.  

Cabin / Stateroom
The Best part of our trip was our cabin. We enjoyed the balcony view tremendously! Thank you SUZANNE DOYLE-WELCH, our United rep, for suggesting such a wonderful cabin! The location, mid-ship, was close to everything we needed!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
The initial embarkation process in NY was rather confusing. The employees at the port were very unfriendly and not knowledgeable about the keycard process.
Ship Quality
Though the ship was Huge, some parts started to look a bit run down.
Destinations and Excursions
Port Canaveral was very barren and unattractive. Great Stirups Cay was too crowded, and Nassau Bahamas was very rundown and the locals were extremely pushy.
Onboard Activities
I would have enjoyed more free fitness classes in the afternoons. All fitness classes were in the morning, or charged a fee.
Children's Programs N/A
The shows on this cruise were so-so.
Service and Staff
Muchamat, our housekeeper, was Excellent! Overall, the staff and crew members on this ship were very friendly and hardworking.
Food and Dining
Though the food was a bit too repetitive, we found the taste was Excellent! It would have been a bit more convenient if the buffet ran 24 hours, like on some other cruise lines.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Nothing to do at the Port.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Way too crowded.
Nassau, Bahamas
Rundown, with extremely pushy locals.
