Here is a quick review. Sail date 6/1/2014 to Bermuda, Mid ship, mini suite, Deck 14, Party of 8 with 3 cabins..
Boarding: it took about 25 minutes from the time we got to the pier to be in the cabin.
Luggage: Most of the luggage was in the cabins within 3 hours.
The Mini Suite VS Balcony Cabin.. are same size The Mini suite a little bigger bathroom with a double size shower w/ sprays.. great shower very spacious.. a little more costly, but if you can afford it go for it, otherwise the balcony room is fine. The balcony is about 3 ft deep and 9'- 10' wide .. it was very comfortable. Remember you are not having a party in backyard.. that you can do on the deck 16 ..
Dining: Book your dining in advance online unless you want late dinners. Cagneys steakhouse is the best restaurant on the ship.The casino is spacious and has a non smoking section..
The weather was about 78 degrees in Bermuda, the water temp was a little cold but you got used to it quickly. There is a small beach only 5 minutes from the ship ( a kids park $5 entrance fee)
Back to New York.. DO NOT CARRY YOUR OWN LUGGAGE OFF THE SHIP.. have a nice breakfast on deck 7 and watch the people on the line for an hour waiting & carrying & dragging their luggage. Then you get off the ship, pick up your luggage, get a porter and sail thru customs bypassing the lines..15- 20 minutes total time
