Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

Being New Englanders we enjoy going out of Boston because of the convenience. The embarkation process was super easy this time...very little waiting around....and as usual, the staff was friendly and helpful.

We had been on the Gem before, so it was easy to get around and find everything. Our balcony cabin on the 9th floor was always clean and tidy. Thanks to the tour we had, we heard that the towel animals would be “endangered” because of all the extra laundry it causes, but we did have a few on our 2 week cruise.

We are Platinum level and also had 5 other specialty dining nights (due to the package deal) and we definitely enjoyed those nights. Cagney’s steaks are so delicious as is their OMG cheesecake. We love La Bistro, including the escargots. The food and dining experience at Tepanyaki is always fun.
