Food and Dining

Jamie's Italian

5 out of 5

One of my favorites. The meat plank was good and the garlic prawns. Lasagna was scintillating.

Hooked Seafood

5 out of 5

Large portions. The calm chowder and drunken mussels are the best. The lobster roll was okay to cold for me. The staff and the ambience was awesome.

Chop's Grille

5 out of 5

The best food specialty restaurant on the boat. Delicious food and excellent staff. The place books up fast but you can call or stop by restaurant to see if they have openings.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabin was nice great view of the Central Park. Close to the elevator. However, I pulled all of the sheets off our bed because I wanted new sheets. We came back to our room only to be told that they found an insect on our bed. They didn’t tell us what insect it was. They moved us to a balcony stateroom over looking the ocean which was nice and the room attendant was amazing. But we had to leave all our belongings luggage included to be “ cleaned” and we would get it back in the morning. Well when we got our belongings back there was a big sign that said “ BED BUGS”!! We were instantly freaked out. Guest services only offered us 25% off our next cruise.
