Booked to travel with friends, who later backed out. Between the Coast Guard and the weather nothing came off as scheduled.departure was delayed by at least 8 hours due to "non-mechanical" problems found during Coast Guard inspection. Arrived in Boston at 4:00 pm and all excursions cancelled. Missed total of 2 ports of call. To their credit the line refunded 2 days of cruise to our on board account. 40 knot winds and 12-15 ft swells kept everyone on their toes. Can't fault the Captain for changes to keep us out of the worst of the storm.
Food was fine in both dinning room and up stairs. Service was at the level to be expected.Ship in reasonable shape for being 24 yo. Entertainment was quite good. The ventriloquist and magician/mentalist were superb. Cabin was clean and room steward excellent. Only fault would have been that the crew had no "plan B" for extra sea days. No additional activities, so about there was a lot of time to fill. I'd bet the bar and casino revenues were quite good.
