This was a chartered cruise. We went for the entertainers. I believe there were 1600 passengers and 850 crew. No one got sick. Ship was spotless.staff was excellent. The food which is usually sumptuous was not that great. It was OK but not up to HAL standards. Embarking and getting off was smooth for us. We were docked at pier 26. Nice terminal and very well organized. Still don't approve of specialty restaurants. I think that's why the food in MDR is not up to what it used to be. Now I understand they want to have a fixed menu of the same entrees each night. So you would have to choose a different restaurant if you wanted a bigger variety.

I must say we used the internet on board and it worked well for us. Drinks were stingy and seemed watered down. Even the Wine.

There was no turning downtrend bedding or other little amenities. But as I said we mainly went for the entertainment.
