A Great Experience

Sail Date: September 2009
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

Embarkation and Debarkation couldn't have been smoother.From the minute we arrived on board everything was great. Check in was quick. We arrived at 11am dropped the bags in front. By 12 we were boarding. We checked out our room, a inside cabin. We have been on other ships and the room was big enough. We started exploring the ship. Wow it is big. We had some lunch and sat by the pool.A little later we meet our room steward. Jerry was a very nice guy spoke English well and took care of any of our needs. We purchased a coffee card and loved it. Also the food at the international cafe was not to bad. The meals were all good. A little fancy, but all nice. Both are waiter and bus boy were great. Jorge and Jose table 116. We did traditional dining. Are table mates were pleasant also. I must say we were so lucky that the weather was as good as it could have been.

The entertainment was good. Not great. We didn't like the fact they repeated the production shows 2 days in a row. The More problem is the theater is way to small for the amount of people on the ship. We enjoy going to the shows and had to get there early to get a seat.The first comedy show was not very funny.Rollin Jay Moore. We didn't like him. The piano player Bert Stratton was great. Do not miss his show. The last comedy show with James Michael was great. Very funny. The cruise director and his staff were great. We also took The Ultimate Ship Tour. It was worth every cent it cost.We walked off with our bags. Off the ship at 745 Less
