Very Enjoyable

Sail Date: April 15, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

A good selection of ports of call and shore excursions.  But there was not enough time in port and too much time at sea.  It would have been better departing from Miami rather than New York (and it would have had smoother seas and warmer weather also).  Great food and service.  Onboard entertainment could have been better.  The comedian and acrobatic team were great, but the others should have stayed in New York.

Cabin / Stateroom
Better than expected for an inside stateroom.
Service and Staff
Benedith Martinez was fantastic in handling special dietary needs. Jeremiah Peters was a very friendly room steward and provided great service.
Jeff Harms was super. The husband/wife acrobatic team was great. The rest were forgettable.
