We chose this cruise for our second one with ACL for two reasons: we are very impressed with the service and atmosphere of this cruise line and it was a lobster cruise.
Yes, this ship was an older one, but that did not interfere with its charm - of course we prefer the personal service the smaller ships provide rather than the glitz and glam of the huge hotels on water.
You will get to know most of your fellow passengers if you like. There is no assigned seating at meals, and we chose to move around to many tables. The staff will do their best to accomodate your hunger. If there is nothing on the menu that suits you, they will cook a hamburger or sandwich.
