Sail Date: Dec 2016
Cabin: Central Park View Stateroom with Balcony

The ship was fantastic. My family had a great time and everyone on the ship was very friendly. The shows were outstanding!! Best we have ever seen. But you do need reservations. My husband couldn't get into the comedy club because they were booked solid. They should have put it in a bigger place so more people could enjoy. The diving show was spectacular! I wasn't too fond of the cruise director - aren't they usually funny and show personality?? And the bingo lady - no jokes at all - just called the numbers. Guess I was looking for a laugh here and there. The food was only so so. I was surprised that the main dining room charged extra if you wanted filet mignon or lobster. One night my son wanted a NY strip steak because he didn't care for anything else on the menu and they said he couldn't get one, but could pay $19.99 for filet mignon that night. Also, the specialty restaurants charged just as much as if dining in a fine restaurant in NY. I thought we already paid for food and that there should be a minimal charge - not $75/pp for Chops (too expensive for ship dining). Other specialty restaurants charged more. Lastly, the pool area was just a pool. I didn't see any fun things going on around the pool - no big screen, live bands, or contests. The cruise was great and my family really enjoyed it! We enjoyed St. Maartin the most. Found a resort with a beach and restaurants 5 minutes from ship. Walked around San Juan and couldn't wait to get back on the ship. Saw a lot of stray cats walking to the Fort. Labadee was also good. Beach and food from the ship and many excursions to pick from.

Cabin Review

Central Park View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin C1

Our cabin overlooked Central Park. Beautiful! Had to keep our drapes shut at night otherwise the other cabins could look in and also people from the pool could see in our cabin. The room attendant was outstanding!
