Our cruise took us to Bermuda leaving from Cape Liberty, NJ. Getting on the ship was a smooth organized process. The Windjammer was so busy, all the time and probably had only a 25% ratio to accommodate the passengers. We opted the first and second days while at sea for lunch at Chops which was very good and the service was great! Once we got to our room I was definitely disappointed in our spacious balcony cabin, the skirting around our bed was barely hanging on by a thread, the TV mount pieces were coming apart and it was in need of a deeper cleaning and remodel. The mattress was also hard and usually I'm not that picky. The two chairs and tables outside on the balcony were probably the most up to date pieces in our room!
Luckily, we booked our trip early enough to have reservations at 5:30pm for dinner in the dining room. We quickly noticed that a line started forming around 5:00pm each night and grew longer and longer as we ate our dinner. We found out these were folks didn't have a designated time for dinner and were waiting for a table. Our dinner took approximately 1.5 to 2 hours each night so those folks were looking at 7:30 to 8pm to be seated for dinner... We also noticed that we didn't really need to dress for dinner, people came in shorts, sweatshirts, clothing that is more suitable for pool side. We felt overdressed!
The pool area was good enough and the activities on the ship were also equally adequate. We visited the casino a few times, there were many different slots to choose from and tables, we had no luck until our last visit on the last night. We attended one show, the juggling/comedy show which was very entertaining. The other shows started during the middle of our dinner. Show times should be changed to a 7:30-8pm start. Music was plentiful and nice.
