Room Type: Balcony

The best part of the cruise was the Gem band! They were great, and the Broadway style shows were fantastic! The comedy group were very entertaining as well.

The balcony cabin # 10018 was a bit on the small side, but always kept clean by our steward, Wilson. He also provided us with some fun towel animals.

My friend and opted for the spa package that allowed us all of the time we wanted in the sauna, steam room and therapy pool, it was not a bargain at $149.00 but we both thought it was worth every penny!!!

Somewhat tighter than other ships I have been on.

I chose this cruise for the ports of call, but wish we had more time in Newport, Rhode Island and Bar Harbor, Maine. We were tendered at those locations, and the tendering took up too much of our time ashore.
