Pro: Entertainment is great. Best shows anywhere. Helpful staff. Observation lounge is perfect place to relax. Lots to do throughout the day and night. Taste Restaurant is the best for a quiet dinner. Waterfront promenade deck has great sitting space with comfy chairs and sofas. Also has two outdoor bars. Con: Ship creaks a lot. Deck 9 right over noisy deck 8-avoid deck 9 cabins. Crew very busy and limited guest interaction. Disembarkation took almost an hr just to get off ship. Food ok but nothing special Cagney’s and Manhattan restaurants extremely noisy. Guest Services promises to resolve noise issues, but issue kept reoccurring. Gift shops kept selling the same stuff everyday. No rotation with fresh products. Cookies only available in evening in buffet. Cabin storage is mostly shelves, not pull out drawers. TV channel selection very limited. Navigation info on TV was sometimes very inaccurate. We would not go out of our way to cruise on this ship again.

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MA 9828
Cabin is located right above the seafood restaurant’s kitchen. When restaurant closes at 11pm the crew starts cleaning kitchen and goes thru 3AM! Can hear all the noises as they bang metal equipment. Nice bathroom with tub and wide sink. Can actually fit two people in the bathroom at same time. Bed ok, but nothing special. This cabin has bed next to closet and sofa next to balcony door. Some mini suites have bed next to balcony door and sofa next to closet.
