We chose this cruise because of the class of ship. With 3 young children with us it's nice to have the boardwalk and carousel and the other activities when walking around with them. We also enjoy Central Park. We ate dinner 4 nights in the specialty restaurants which we had not done before, other than Chops. Our curiosity is satisfied and other than Chops we probably wouldn't do that again. The quality of the food and service was very good but just not something that we really care about. We found the service in the dining room to be excellent which is something we couldn't say about the last few cruises. We had My Time Dining and did only eat in the DR 3 nights. We really weren't very impressed with the new menu and the bread being on the table which was lacking some of our favorites. My husband and son-in-law love the chilled soups and we didn't see any on the menu. We are Diamond Plus members and were not impressed by the Diamond Lounge. The service in there was really lacking and we had to find servers to order drinks on several occasions. We are very laid back and not in the least demanding so that was pretty bad. Definite pros and cons to such a big ship, we found Labadee really crowded which we really hadn't noticed before. That said...there were a lot of areas on the ship that we were able to find that were not crowded at all. The public areas are very nice and well kept. We really enjoyed the cruise and will go again in October, on the Allure.

Cabin Review

Cabin 8682
Not really sure what the category was. We had an ocean balcony and the configuration of the cabin was the one with the bed on the closet side of the room rather than the balcony side of the room. Seems to make the room seem even smaller and cramped. A pain to get into the closet. That said...we've been on enough cruises to not expect spacious accommodations. Another issue with that configuration is that the air blows from above the closet and the cold air blows directly on you, which I really hate. Couldn't seem to redirect it.
