First cruise, will certainly cruise again soon. Very pleased with the ship accommodations and staff. The dining was spectacular, both the main dining as well as the specialty dining. The staff was very helpful and polite all the time. The Ultimate Beverage package is wonderful. Bermuda was very nice and having 2.5 days was enough time for us to see both Hamilton as well as St. George. Plenty to do on the island so do your DD before you head out on the cruise. If you like getting away from the crowds get the spa package...totally worth it. We sailed at the end of April and it is far too cold and windy to do the pool and tanning on the ship. But the weather in Bermuda was sufficient for beach and tan. Ocean is freezing cold, but doable if you are used to the Jersey shore. All in all fantastic time on the cruise and will cruise again.


Booking through American Airlines was simple and they are very helpful and great to work with.

Cabin / Stateroom
Room was roomier than expected. We fit three large suitcases full of clothing and shoes in the room and tucked the suitcases under the bed. Bathroom was also larger than expected. View from balcony is awesome. Sunsets are great and great views of the Verrazano and Statue of Liberty on the way out.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Far easier than expected. We did the early morning walk yourself off option and it went very smoothly and quickly.
Ship Quality
Ship is great.
Destinations and Excursions
Bermuda is great. Lots of awesome beaches. Most of the shopping is high end fashion and jewelry. Food on the island is great...especially Tempest Bistro in St. George. Great for a fine lunch experience. About $50 a person with a bottle of wine and desert!
Did not partake in too much entertainment, but Les Getrex and the Cookin' Creole Band were great at Fat Cats the last night.
Service and Staff
Because it is freestyle you mostly only get familiar with your cabin cleaner. Joshu was ours and he was amazing. All other staff on the ship are great as well.
Food and Dining
Fine dining every night!
