Sail Date: Oct 2022
Cabin: Grand Suite with Large Balcony - 1 Bedroom

Could have added an extra port or two . We had one day at sea between both Halifax and Boston and Boston and Newark when it's only 8 hours direct. Could have added Lisbon or Vigo.

Entertainment not that great, they spent $6 million on the two 70 theatre rotating tv screens when they could have made the dance floor twice as big. The Esplanade poor set of shops mainly jewelry and watches. No stores for general products like Tylenol. Have to go to medical Bay at a charge of$144 to get a prescription for Tylenol and then pay $40 for the pills. Do not book a ' next cruise' for $100 just to get $50 on board credit . You get one chance to change you booking , if you need to change again then you lose the $100 plus they charge a penalty of$100 for cancelling the previous cruise just a rip off.

Chips grill was ok but not much better than the windjammer, Jamie's Italian was pretty poor good was cold and not worth the $. Pretty boring ship unless you like to disco at 1am. Taxis are charging $75 to go to EWR Uber for 49. Cruise would be better on a multi port itinerary

Balcony cabin a good size with a couch , bathroom good with large enough shower

Port Reviews

Ponta Delgada

Can walk into town, nice coffee shops and market, people very friendly , speak English and very helpful when asking directions


University town, long walk into the center better to take a taxi.$49 USD each for hop on hop off rip off.

Taxi $10. Peggy's Cove would be nice on a warm dry day!


Uber to market , nice shopping, walk to little Italy restaurants for lunch.


Premier Inn great location, closed to pier sand West Quay mall.
