this timed out on my last attempt. Not going to type it all again...but summary Lido Buffet was poor at best, no selection, people without shoes and shirts at buffet and eating. Dining room wait staff were the wrst we have ever had and food was just average at best. This is our 8th cruise and our 10th wedding anniversary trip. Our cake was delivered as a DIET Orange slice of cake...TACKY! Room service was excellent....Entertainment was great including ROGER in the sing along bar. Cruise Director made way to many announcements and were overly loud even causing the live music to stop playing and waking me up in my state room. Much more to say but I lost my last entry....Just an average cruise because of the poor service. Ship and decor was great!
The ship was nice, clean and attractively decorated but that is where it ends. Overall the cruise was just average to below average. The best part of this ship was by far the room. It had plenty of closet and living space and a slightly smaller than average shower.
The dining room staff was less than friendly and were short handed
The Staff on board made us feel as if we were just a bother because it was a repostion cruise
FOOD ON BOARD WAS PATHETIC at BEST!!!!! Worst food I have ever had on 7 cruises by far. The Buffet was really poor as far as layout, selection, quality and taste.
During the entire cruise the temperature on the ship was extremly warm as if they never turned on the air conditioning through the public areas and the rooms also would not cool very well. Thankfully it was not warm out and we could open the balcony door for cool air.
Very disorganized dismbarkation process.
