Review summary

Was a good cruise overall. Library had awful hours would be my only complaint. Staff was awesome and friendly. The sushi was amazing and even though it was al la cart it was extremely cheap (average of $8 for a full, fresh made plate). A good trip overall

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Was kept clean. Some carpets and designs seemed a little out dated

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Was kept very clean, was smaller that It seemed in pictures. I was expecting 2 queen size beds like the picture I saw but instead it was 1 king, a couch that transformed into a very uncomfortable bed and a twin that came down from the roof.

Ship tip

Get the drink package; whether it be just the soda one or the full drink package. One soda cost almost $5 but the daily soda package cost $6. The alcohol averaged about 10-13$ per drink for basic drinks.

Ports of call

Boston, Massachusetts Did not visit port

I live near Boston so was not really anything new to me

Royal Naval Dockyard, West End, Bermuda

3 out of 5
The excursions were very expensive for some things. The islands were beautiful but if you didn’t do an excursion the only real thing to do there was walk around and shop.

We were held up by the Dockyard police and were required to have all passengers out of there cabins and in main areas waiting for about 45 mins and then disembarkmemt was crowded.
