Review summary

Beautiful looking ship,clean and maintained.My stateroom,a mini suite balcony,was nice with sufficient room and a balcony able to seat two.The bed in the room was lumpy,and did not provide for a good nights rest.The bars and lounges were enjoyable and was able to get beer on tap. The house band prism was entertaining and a singer/guitar player named Leo was excellent.The food was good,not great.The italian restaurant had a relaxing and less noisy atmosphere.Cagneys steak house was nice,but the food did not wow me. I was surprised a lobster dinner was not offered in the restaurants,considering being in the ports of Bar Harbor and halifax.The crew and all the staff were pleasant and helpful,and overall the cruise was a pleasant time.
