Review summary


During this first leg of a repositioning cruise from New Jersey to Shanghai the ship was full, but did not seem so, except for when we were in some of the more popular restaurants or at the blockbuster show (Mama Mia). The dynamic dining had it's problems, but the restaurants had great food, for the most part.

Cabin was a standard balcony and was well laid out. Good service from room attendant. Good variety of entertainment, but not a lot of activities during the day for so  many people - over 4000. Pretty rocky ride during the transatlantic crossing. 

Awful internet service! Only one our iPads had connectivity (very slow) and we purchased a package for two. No reimbursement offers.
