Cabin: Cloud 9 Spa Balcony

This trip was so relaxing. I traveled with my boyfriend. We started the trip by using Faster to Fun. This allowed us to embark as soon as we got to the pier at 11:00 am and to get into our cabin immediately. This was nice because we had brought the two bottles of wine that we were allowed to bring. It is always a pain carrying heavy items around as you wait to get into the cabin.

We stayed in a spa balcony cabin on deck 11 near the spa. The room had a king bed, a couch and a pull down bed that we did not use as there were only the two of us. We stayed on the starboard side so that we could see the Statue of Liberty as we left the port from our balcony. We ordered water ahead of time and it was delivered to our cabin shortly after we arrived. We asked the cabin steward to make room in the mini bar for it. She cleared out the refrigerator and we put our water in there. We took that water off the ship with us when we went to ports.

The cabin stewards were exceptional. We had towel animals every night and the room was very clean. After we got into our cabin, we went to the buffet for lunch. The first day is a good day to try the wok and burrito bar as the lines are small as people are just settling in. Both the wok and burrito bar were delicious. The first night we ate at the steakhouse. We chose this night because you got a free bottle of wine. If you chose a wine that was not one of the free ones, you got it at 50% off. We chose this option as we only drink sweet wine. We both ate the cowboy steaks. They were very good but huge. I could not finish mine.

The use of the spa is included in the price of a spa cabin.

New York (Manhattan)

Embarkation and debarkation were seamless. Please tip the porters. They work so hard.
