15 Night Transatlantic, England to Boston
The ship itself was very nice for its age. It recently had a bit of a facelift and it showed. The ship felt new and fresh. The common areas were all well maintained and classy feeling. The staff was mostly very good. Especially the R bar and Schooner Bar staff was very good, who were very friendly and experienced.
The food was good in each venue, although I wasn't the biggest fan of the Giovanni's Table food. Not worth the upcharge I didn't think. I did like Chops.
We did the drink package for unlimited drinks for 15 days at a cost More of $825 each and that was SO worth it. Saved us tons of money and is well worth it if you are a drinker. You can get top-shelf liquors, which cost about $10 ordered separately. Just watch your bill if you get it, as we were each charged a few times from bars for drinks, even though we had the package.
I highly recommend this ship if you have the option. Good size and many options of dining venues and bars. I can't speak much to the entertainment, as we only went to a couple shows. They are what they are ... mass-market cruise line shows. Less
Cabin review: E37578 Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
This room was above Vintages and slightly above the edge of the Casino. You could hear just a little noise from the Casino later at night. Nothing to bothersome though. The room itself is a good location if you are on Deck 7, close enough to the mid-ship stairwells, but not too close. Note this room is on the opposite side of the side-mounted mid-ship elevators on this ship.Read All Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony (E3) Reviews >>
