Great Cruise for Family and Friends

Sail Date: June 07, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Crew was fabulous and the onboard entertainment was excellent. Plenty of options to keep you busy while at sea.  Halifax and St. John's was beautiful.  Cabin size OK but really liked separate sink with the shower and toilet had own doors so two people could use bathroom.  Stayed in balcony rooms next to each other and was disappointed that no longer allowed to open shared balcony door between the two rooms as we had previously had on other cruise lines. 

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
High quality productions and incredible talent. Enjoyed the singers/dancers, juggler and magician
Onboard Activities
A little cool on the trip but nice pool area, walking area, gym and deck area
Destinations and Excursions
St. John and Halifax were beautifuul. Only disappointment was the Behind the Scenes was so limited and booked quickly. Would have preferred to know about it ahead of time or have more that one offering.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ok size but like bathroom set up - sink separate and toilet and shower had individual doors.


Sign up for Behind the Scenes tour of cruise ship as soon as you board - it books fast!
