Sail Date: May 2014
Cabin:

I could have just copied a review of this ship I found elsewhere...it was written in Nov., 2011 but just about everything that reviewer said I found applicable to our cruise to Bermuda. So when we're asked for comments at the end of the cruise, what's the point? Nothing changed from Nov., 2011.

Embarkation was easy peasy...Onboard at 11 or so and then a three hour lunch waiting for our veranda cabin to be be ready...

The lunch in the Terrace buffett was fine...good selection, everything prepared well. The cabin was small but comfortable...the ship's easy to find one's way around. Dinner's in the grand Dinning Room were...interesting...our first night, my wife ordered a NY stripe steak...inedible...sooo much gristle...the server never asked how it was...in fact during the cruise, we only had one server who seemed to care if we enjoyed our dinner..thank you, Jorge, from Portugal. The second night, three of us sat in a row..we each ordered soup...we each took one sip and it tasted like pure salt. One would think the server might ask why three of us left our soup...he didn't. Most of the meals in the Grand Dining Room were excellent...but, really, now...just two slices of beef tenderloin and just 4 thimble sized portions of grilled tuna? By contrast, all the meals in Toscana and the Polo Grill were excellent with excellent service...

Cabin Review

Somewhat small but adequate storage, comfy bed. Good cabin attendant but once entered without knocking at all and once knocked once and immediately entered.

Port Reviews

Norfolk

Since we waited in the immigration line for 1.5 hrs after arriving 3.5 hrs late, the first day was shot. I wanted to tour the museum next to us but it closed at 5 and I got thru immigration 5 minutes after it closed. The second day, we walked thruout the historical district and I toured the USS Wisconsin battleship which is docked right next to us. The town is very tourist friendly..very clean, easy to move about...
