Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The Specialty Dining is worth the price but the main dining, buffet and O Sheahans are fine

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Cooler weather, at least the pool is less crowded. Be sure to look at the Gym schedule of classes - the daily Stretch class is free!


4 out of 5
Choir of Man is worth seeing. The other entertainment were fine. The comedy club needs additional shows to accomodate demand.

Children's Programs

No children

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Service was good, but not as good as others in the fleet; the Bliss has the best service.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is nicely laid out.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The Studio setup for solo travelers felt like being pampered. The assigned crew member makes sure no one is left out if they don't want to be.

Ship tip

Book everything in advance or as soon as you get on the ship of 4,000 other passengers

A small city. Walk to the City Market. Beyond that, options may be limited

Halifax, Nova Scotia

5 out of 5
Go to the Maritime Museum if you have any interest in Nova Scotia's key role in recovering bodies from the Titanic. It also has amazing ship models.
