We enjoyed our trip\, very relaxing\, and yet plenty to do! Ship is very clean\, staff very attentive. The only sad part was that due to weather we did not go to the private island we expected to visit\, and spent an extra day at sea. In fact\, we returned early so we were hanging out in the waters off NJ.

Food and Dining

Specialty restaurants are way better than buffet. Worth the extra money.

Every evening show was terrific! Look at your daily planner to make arrangements.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
You may want to have the steward take everything out of the fridge. We had missing items\, and she told us she removed them because they were expired. Really? Those Heinekens and diet pepsi expired DURING my trip? ok
