Sail Date: May 2016
Cabin: Interior Stateroom

The port of Baltimore is the best port to cruise from. Embarkation went quick and smooth. Our room wasn't ready until 1PM. so we went to the Windjammer for lunch and as usual it was very crowded. The food was ok. When we could go to our room our luggage was already there. That was a first. The ship is old but very well kept and very clean. On sea days we ate lunch in the MD . Food on the menu was just ok however the salad bar was excellent. We never ate breakfast or lunch at the Park Cafe but we ate a late night pizza there. I don't think I have ever eaten such a cold and dry pizza. We had my-time dining in the MD and our waiter was Algen . He and his assistant were excellent. The food was not the best I have eaten however it was quite good.

As for the entertainment,,,,,,, It was to be expected if you have ever cruised before. Some was really good and some wasn't.

I never smelled any sewer smell anywhere on the ship as some people have said. We are Diamond members and we went to the Diamond event every night. The drinks and horderves were very good and the company of other Diamond members was lots of fun.

Cabin Review

Interior Stateroom

Cabin M

The cabin was on deck 2. It was interior and mid ship. It was very small so we asked to have our beds separated. That gave us a little more room. There in no refrigerator in the room, however they will bring you ice if you ask. The bathroom is another story. The shower is so small. Never drop the soap. The sink is tiny and the faucet did not go all the way into the sink. Could not wash your hands. Had to use the public restrooms to wash hands. The room was very clean and lots of storage. The beds were comfortable. Could not get suit cases under them. That took up room in the closet.

Port Reviews

Portland (Maine)

We love Portland and do out thing there. Had a nice time exploring.

Bar Harbor is a great little port

Boston

It was very hot in Boston so we decided to stay on the ship.

Saint John (New Brunswick)

St John is just ok not much there
