The cruise was great despite the rainy weather . I do wish that the live entertainment on the pool deck was not so loud. The comedians/magicians were very creative.  I will not be using the spa services again: they are too aggressive at trying to sell you their products ( I had a massage and I was not interested in purchasing a bath product). We have never been disappointed with the meals at La Cucina and Cagney's. The chicken parm and filet mignon are the best we've ever had.  We took a "behind the scenes" tour----it was educational! and fun! And our cabin steward was fantastic!

It took > 2.5 hours to get a cab when we returned to NYC- almost missed our train. We might not use NYC again

not much to do within walking distance. you arrive at 3p- doesn't make for a good beach day
