9 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)

Many good things to be said about this cruise like the great staff, decent food and good shows.   Never felt crowded on the boat.   The only cons would be that the ship could use some updating which I believe is scheduled.   There can be a better method to prevent saving chairs around the pool also but these are minor complaints.  Overall, it was very relaxing and enjoyable.

Check in is much slower than other cruise lines.

Pretty but short. Took a $10 taxi ride right at the pier. Well worth it.

Always a fun port. Where else can you get two lounge chairs and 4 beers for $20?
