We arrived in Brooklyn at noon and were on the ship within 15 minutes. Easy check-in. Everything was ready for us. We had the buffet lunch and did the scavenger hunt that the gets around the ship to check things out and enter the free drawings. It was a great way to see the spa and find out about possibilities.
Food- Wonderful! the meals in Coral Dining room were great. we had traditional dining time of 5:30 and they were a little flexible on that timing. Excellent service. I found the cuts of steak below average but everything was superb. The Caribee Dining Room on Deck 15 offered great meals in the evening if you just wanted to go at your own pace. Never had to wait for a seat in the Horizon Court or Caribee Dining areas. Though the ship was at capacity you never felt crowded.
Shows- the theater shows were great. we went to the Piano Man show twice because it ws so great. Tracy in the dance troupe was a great singer. There was always something going on in the evening and we always had great shows or games to go to. Great variety in the music styles.
Accommodations: We had an inside cabin and it was fine. We didn't spend much time there and the steward was always thorough.
Staff: were always pleasant and friendly.
Disembarkation: You don't have to be out of your cabin until 8:00 am and we were off the ship and at our car in 10 minutes!
