Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Our cruise was very nice. St. John's NB should not be a stop. There just isn't enough there to warrant a full day. Could be skipped altogether. Bar Harbor and Halifax were outstanding ports. Did not see the colors we thought we would. Maybe too late? or the colors just weren't there this year. Our cabin steward, Nazario, was outstanding. Really on top of things and went over and beyond service.

This ship definitely has a problem with its toilet backups. The 7th deck had a block of cabins that always had toilet problems as did many of the public restrooms.

The food in the main dining room was very very good as was the service. The waiters and waitresses all made you feel that they enjoyed serving you. They were friendly and happy and we really thought they went out of their way to give you excellent service. We had a mix up on dining schedule, but we were happy with the 5:30 pm. time.

Cabin E1

Now the cabin. We were assigned 7598 on deck 7. Never again and I wish when we booked this cabin, some advice would have been given about noise level.We are not night owls, but not total early people either. To have the level of music that was played until 11:30 p.m. every night was totally irritating. The cabin location was right outside the centrum and you could hear every boom boom like it was right in your room. I hope people will read this and think twice if they don't like to be up that late
