Sail Date: Sep 2013
Cabin: Balcony

I just returned from a 7 day New England/Canada cruise departing Manhattan. I can never become bored with that departure from New York, it's just jaw dropping. We sailed from Sept. 14th to Sept. 21. The weather was incredible, clear blue skies, calm seas and warm temperatures.

The food in the dining room was generally very good. Our 3 waiters worked together with military precision for dinner service and cleanup and then jumped into the line with the other waiters to 'perform' for us. The chilled black cherry soup my husband had was surprisingly delightful. The buffets were actually quite wonderful. There was something on their menus that could please anyone.

The casino is where this ship fails. The machines are too close together, there is too much smoke, it's just everywhere, the slot machines are antiques and there's only electronic poker, no live dealer. And, there's only one electronic poker table so after dinner when a bunch of players wanted a game, they had to wait and wait until a seat opened up which could be hours.

Cabin Review

Balcony

I packed quite a lot of clothing since I didn't know whether to expect chilly or warm weather and found that there was more than enough storage space for all our things. My husband uses a CPAP machine for sleep apnea and there was nowhere to plug in the machine by the bed. Luckily I brought my own extra long extension cord and was able to plug it into the only existing outlet visible which was above the tabletop bureau. I would prefer a shorter/smaller sitting couch in the room in order to facilitate a few more inches of room for the small bedside tables. The one in front of our window was so close to the window that the curtains kept getting caught on the table and lamp.The serenity deck would be better if it were located aft. It's just too far away from mid and aft ship for most seniors to comfortably walk to.
