PROS: 1. Ease/Friendliness @ Cape Liberty (arrived around 11am boarded before noon) (left ship @ 9:30a, and was at vehicle by 10a) 2. Food and service at the Main Dining Room - 5 star plus 3. Cleanliness of public areas 4. Seasons- ice skating show 5. Additional entertainment- Jim David(comedian) and The Happenings 6. Weather (no rain) mostly mid 70s all week 7. Halifax pier- Multiple buildings with shops/foods
CONS: 1. Service and food selection at the Cafe Promenade (turkey would be a nice change from ham [not everyone eats pork]) sandwiches rarely changed 2. Activities/Timing - popular activities were scheduled for the same time, and final parade scheduled to start 15 min before the 5:30p seating at the MDR 3. Cruise Compass/TV media- Compass posted wrong info for times and weather- also logos printed backwards (they said temp was to be 88* actual was 67*) TV posted wrong dinner menu (previous nights) 4. Portland as a port of call- streets were dirty/graffiti sidewalks difficult to walk, not wheelchair accessible 5. Bostons pier- No shops or restaurants within walking distance- had to take cab or bus ($$) into city to enjoy Boston 6. Dining room dress code not enforced @ dinner (ppl in shorts/flip flops)
This room was forward, about 4 rooms from the elevators. Hallways were always quiet, and never had any noise disturbance. There was a service closet and service stairs/elevators across from our room, but never had any issues. The doors were usually closed, and never heard any noise.
Balcony was nice. Room included a safe. Excellent design for space utilization. Huge closet. Old TV set not a clear picture. New linens were a place. Sheets felt like 600 thread count. Always hot water. Toilet area always had a bad smell like an outhouse. They cleaned it daily, but didn't help.
