  • Cabin Type: Family Mini-Suite with Balcony

We went on this cruise for my in-laws 60th wedding Anniversary, we anticipated it would an older crowd and we weren't wrong. The cruise staff was fantastic, the passengers weren’t your typical rowdy pool crowds. Finding deck chairs at the pool was no issue. Our Cabin steward Rod was amazing,. This was our second time on the ship, it is showing some wear but still a great ship. They are trying to control the smoke smell in the hallways around the casino, however it is still very noticeable. Howl at the moon is a must, sad this isn’t on the newer ships. The food was really good, especially Carney’s, LaCucina and Teppanyaki. We really didn’t have a bad meal on the ship. If there was a downer to the cruise it was the whale watching in Bar Harbor, save your money. We knew it wasn’t a guaranty to see one however when we were talking to one of the workers she had said the whales were staying out further away. The meeting time was 11:45, when we arrive at 11:30 they had boarded all the independent paying customers and all seats on the top levels were already taken. We ended up standing for the first 2 1/2 hours.

Great room, very clean. The bed was uncomfortable however we were able to get mattress pads on them that helped somewhat.
