Food and Dining

Sit down service could be staggered, plus dinner plates were not as warm as they should be. Waiters were excellent, corkage at $18 is high but considering how poor the wine selection is, painful and worth it.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Noisy when entering port because near hawser room. location in bow streamlining of hull, makes for small room, no couch and barely large enough for bed.

Ship tip

Walk the promenade. Enjoy the New York Times in the Library Turn off data roaming AND Wi-fi on you phone. watch dockings, plan a head as an independent traveler to save on shore excursions.
