Oh one other thing, at the first dinner when we were sailing out of Bayonne, the engine must have changed speeds or something because the whole dining room was shaking and the glasses were clanging and stuff. Everyone was looking around wondering what was up, but I knew from a previous post that this always happens, so don't be alarmed when it does.[/quote]
Thanks for the info, I appreciate it! I hope I'll remember, as we don't go until Jan. I'm sure I will remember, after the initial surprise!

What did you think of the ship? We have been on bigger boats and are worried that there won't be enough for our son to do. We really like the 11 night itinerary for December 2005 though. Were the rooms really small? Was the boat crowded with lots of lines?

Any info would be appreciated as we try to make up our minds.
