We were excited about our second cruise this Fall after a RCCL cruise in September.

We left NYC and proceeded to New England ports as well as several in Canada. Our early flight from Baltimore, transfers and embarkation went well. We found the ship to be in pristine condition and the staff to be one of the friendliest on the high seas.

Now for the bad stuff! We found the food to be consistently boring and served either lukewarm or cold. Our only saving grace was Kimberly, our server in the Savor dining room. She went out of her way each night to provide us with hot meals. All other venues, including specialty restaurants, presented us with food served at an incorrect temperature. The selection was also not what we expected. Offering smoked mozzarella ravioli as an appetizer on about eight nights in a row is not the best idea. That, as well as bratwurst for an entree, is not what we would expect from a premium cruise line.

Cabin Review

Mid-ship Balcony Stateroom

Mark, our cabin attendant, was excellent. The room was on the small side but had ample storage, a nice shower and good shelving in the bathroom.
