We choose this cruise to escape winter and actually did back to back cruises as they were to different ports, so we spent 3 weeks on this ship. It's bright and fairly new and has the best food we ever had on any cruise ship (we've been on 35 cruises). Soups were wonderful and the lobster the best ever. Wonderful restaurant choices without additional fees, like New York Deli, The Dive In and the Dutch Café plus the huge Lido Buffet. The rooms are spacious and everything is super clean and gorgeous fresh flowers everywhere. The crew was wonderful and so friendly. There is music everywhere. Most of one floor is devoted to music venues from dual pianos to rock and classical and is called the Music Walk. The only disappointment was the World Stage (their main theater). It's a weird stage and has poor lighting on the performers. When they do do a nice production show like the dancers did in Humanity, it was awesome, but in 3 weeks of cruising there was only that one really well done show.

The BEST FOOD ever!

Cabin Review

Family Oceanview Stateroom
Cabin FA 1143
Best cabin we have ever had. It can hold up to 6 people but with just two of us it was wonderful. Loads of storage space. A big comfy couch and 2 bathrooms, one with sink & walk-in shower the other with tub/shower, toilet & sink in vanity. The only problem, is the shower doors in main bath. They made it hard to get into the tub and hard to sit comfortable on the toilet.
