The ship is beautiful, the staff is awesome.  Whatever you need or want someone will try to help you. The ports of call were amazing and beautiful. We a had a very restful and adventurous vacation

 The dining and food could use some attention. We had several items served to us that were not up to par,,,dishes missing key ingredients like balsamic reduction on a watermelon - feta salad...the reduction makes the salad and requesting it resulted in a long wait and a bottle of vinegar.  A salmon filet with holandaise had approximately 3 drops of sauce amounting to less than a teaspoon and the fish was very dry and overcooked and needed the sauce badly. Towards the end of the trip the food seemed to improve but there were items throughout that I would have ordered again but avoided from not caring for it the first time. That being said, I probably could have had the whole meal replaced but have a problem asking for that.  Also there are far too many passengers for the number of seats in the buffet and some people were running quite short on patience in the lines, things were not pleasant there..Also there were times during the day when you could not get something to eat! There was pizza and pastries but a diabetic and gluten free diet was very hard to satisfy, say at 3pm or after 8 pm, sometimes one needs to eat at those times and there were not choices available like fruit or vegetables.

 The shows were fantastic and we never ran out of things to do onboard, always had plenty of entertainment and choices.
