We chose this cruise because of destination, Bermuda, and the fact it was only 52 miles from home. The trip to Baltimore was easy with plenty of time to spare. We arrived early, around 11AM. and were able to board early. very easy embarktion, very smooth and courteous.We walked around and then went to the lido deck for lunch. The ship was delayed, and we watched while they loaded late deliveries. Our room was ready early and bags were there. Great service. Room was clean and spacious although the balcony could have been bigger. Room steward was super. Trip a bit rocky to start but smoothed out. The speakers throughout the ship need to be updated, as most times you couldn't understand what they were saying. Dinner was open time,and we never waited more than 5 minutes. Very polite service, but never got a hot meal in the dinning room. Hostess was very nice but the last two nights our serves were slow or non entities. Breakfast and lunches at the Buffet. Pools very small, Hot tubs even smaller. Shows OK but not as good as the other cruise. Casino very outdated and laid out poorly. Would probably go back, only if they go out of Baltimore and to somewhere we haven't been.
