Review summary

I still can't get over the size of the ship. It dwarfed any other ships near it. Service was lovely, and Yulia, Milan, Ricardo and Dragon made the cruise even better. Visiting with them was like seeing an old friend. The ports were excellent, and I would not mind going back to several of them. We are already thinking about our next cruise.

Embarkation

3 out of 5
Long, long, long lines in like a warehouse, Warm! We finished one line, just to get into another. 3500 passengers are too many!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Dining room food was good. Buffet food was not as good as I expected. Sometimes the same items seemed to be repeated.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We did not partake of many activities, but there was always something going on.

Entertainment

We did not go to the shows for more than a few minutes.

Children's Programs

No children with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Yulia took care of us with professionalism and humor. She was always available to assist us in selecting the best food choices at dinner. Milan was ever present to assist Yulia, and to watch over us. We could not say enough about her, and she made our cruise the success it was.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was clean and well-maintained. Occasionally, windows in the dining room had water spots on the outside of them. There were always staff cleaning things.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was comfortable and roomy. The balcony was wonderful, and we should have used it more. Next cruise we will! Our room steward kept the cabin clean.

Ship tip

Be served by Yulia in the Symphony dining room! If you like coffee drinks similar to Starbucks, consider buying the coffee card at the International Cafe.

Ports of call

New York, New York

5 out of 5
There was so much to see in so little time. People were everywhere. We did not do an excursion, but did walk to the 9/11 Memorial. A company called Vertoe.com has businesses in NYC that will store luggage while you sight-see. It was a big help for us.

Newport, Rhode Island

5 out of 5
Had a tour set up with Trolley Tours (thru Viator), and were unable to use it. Carlos had promised if we had a problem with the timing of the tour, that he would cancel and credit back the cost. He was as good as his word. If we ever go back to Newport, RI, I will book with him again. 1-401-207-6762.

Boston, Massachusetts

5 out of 5
My niece picked us up, and we went to the JFK Presidential Library. Fascinating! A must. We have been to Boston before, so after the library, we sat at a Starbucks and visited.

Bar Harbor, Maine

5 out of 5
We walked around several blocks around the pier, and just got the feel of the town. Lovely people.

Saint John, New Brunswick

5 out of 5
I walked several blocks to two markets close to the pier. It was delightful and safe. Canadians are friendly. Lovely town from the little I saw.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

5 out of 5
I went with another couple on the city bus to look around. What fun. Lots to see, and then shopped a bit at the markets by the pier. Again, lovely, friendly Canadians.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Much, much easier than embarkation! Better run. Little groups of us in different areas with seating, waiting for our turn to leave the ship.
