Mixed Bag

Sail Date: June 2011
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

Liked: 1) price 2) ports of call 3) vast majority of crew were very friendly 4) very clean 5) sauna and steam room

Disliked 1) embarkation was a long nightmare, three times as long as on previous cruise from NYC 2) "my time dining" is a joke---reservations are not allowed and "my time diners" can only get tables at one of the main restaurants---wait time for a table ranged from 15 minutes (the best night) to an hour and a half 3) whirlpools and pools closed early morning 4) screaming kids throwing food and running around unsupervised at all times day and night (reminder to self: do not travel when kids are out of school) 4) stairways and walkways frequently blocked by the never ending parade of photographers and equipment 5)no alternative dining options when having to wait an hour for a table 6) food in the main dining room and at the buffet was frequently served luke warm at best 7) disembarkation was another insult to guests---must leave your room by 830am to be housed More waiting in a waiting area 8) safety drill was a cattle call where guests are shoved shoulder to shoulder in lines five or six people deep while very rude crew members bark out orders to take the safety drill seriously (of course this is after they have pumped all the guest with $7.50 embarkation cocktails) Less
