This cruise was chosen because of the departure relatively close to where we live in NJ and also because of the itinerary including the Christmas holiday. We has my time dining and on the first night, the evening meal we had in the American Icon dining room set up an amazing tenor for the cruise. During the meal service from a nice waiter staff of Franklin and Xia Dhong, the head waiter ALEXANDER TRAVASSO arranged for us to have the same table and wait staff if we wanted it and we did. So every night we had the most amazing level of service like we have not had on all our previous cruises. We are a family of two grandparents, two adult children and tree teen age grandsons. Each meal Alexander made sure w had fresh fruit plates and cheese plates served as we sat down. Then along came the greatest bar server ever UPENDRA PATLEKAR, These two guys absolutely made our cruise spectacular, KUDOS to them! Embarkation and debarkation were smooth. We had a three bedroom family suite of interconnecting cabins with an immense balcony. Weather was windy so some shore activities were canceled, but full refunds promptly provided. Shows were just okay, but the Christmas Eve show was superlative. And the English pub was fun. The promenade was a fun place to sit, relax and people watch. The Sports Complex was like it was custom made for our family. From non-stop basketball for the boys, to the bumping cars for this 80 tear old grandpa, it was a great experience. We would definitely go again.

Spectacular dining room staff
