Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

We chose this ship in part because it promised blues and jazz every night. It had neither. The BBKing Allstars played only loud rock, the type you can hear in any middling night club in any city. The musicians were average. The percussionist was especially aggravating as he threw in a bass drum boom about every six beats. Total disappointment.

The Music Walk dueling pianos salvaged the lounge music entertainment. They played a wide variety of songs from the last 40 years and were quite good. Their personalities added to the entertainment experience.

The Lincoln Center classical musicians were excellent. Three violinists, a pianist and a cellist played simply beautiful and moving music.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin was comfortable and functional. Bed as very comfortable.
