Review summary

Did not enjoy cruise as much as we enjoyed inaugural cruise. This time we never got off the ship. While on the ship we never did anything. My husband was always too cold and didn't want to participate in anything. It was probably because of his age, 94. He had an electric scooter so it was a little challenging for him to get around especially since there were quite a few children on board.

Food and Dining

Food was average in dining room. Chops - Excellent fillet mignon. Buffet too crowded.

Windjammer Marketplace

3 out of 5

Tried to avoid Marketplace as much as possible. We do not like buffet lines or care much for the food.

Schooner Bar

4 out of 5

One of the few bars where you could sit down and get a drink. Good service.

Park Cafe

4 out of 5

Nice place to have lunch after boarding the ship since the Windjammer is very crowded and it is difficult to find a seat. Café has lovely roast beef sandwiches. Decent selection of foods and beverages.

Chop's Grille

5 out of 5

Excellent fillet mignon. Nice selection of side dishes. You could order as many as you wanted with no extra charge. Each side dish was enough to share for two people. Good service.

Cafe Promenade

Difficult to find a seat at times. Didn't particularly care for the selection of snacks.

Onboard Activities

Didn't use any of the facilities. Card room was noisey and didn't have any games.

Efficient way to view and select your photos. Be sure to read the directions at the kiosk where you can view all your photos.

Diamond Club

Relocated way up on Deck 11. Extremely crowded and noisy. Couldn't even find a seat so we never stayed.
