Food and Dining

5 out of 5
There are 3 main dining rooms, including the 2-story Manhattan room. Plus a 24 hour pub and the buffet. And that is just the "free" options. The specialty dining is also amazing.

Sugarcane Mojito Bar

5 out of 5

Spent a lot of time here. The Mojitos are awesome, and the couch in the corner is a great place to read and enjoy a drink.

The Manhattan Room - Main Dining Room

Beautiful dining room suitable for any special occasion, or just dinner.

The Local

24 hour food. Just the place for after the shows, or to eat while a band is playing in the Atrium.

Great authentic Mexican food. Guacamole made fresh at table side.

Food Republic

Awesome menu and dining experience, can get 4 items with a dining credit, or spend money. Either way worth it!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Lots of things to do. I loved the painting classes, the comedy nights, the Broadway quality shows, the spa with thermal suite, sitting on my balcony. It was a cold cruise, so the pool was closed, but it looked nice. I didn't try the gaming pavilion, but folks who did had a good time.

Observation Lounge

5 out of 5

Nice place for quite time. They serve light meals and snacks. Lots of little conversation books with great views.

Stage shows were amazing. Saw Kinky boots, the acts were Broadway quality.

The cabin was clean and beautiful. USB charge ports on each side of the bed, the bathroom was nice.

Ship tip

Don't try to see everything. There is too much. I was on for 9 days with no port stops, and still didn't get everywhere...
