Review summary

Food and service in the dining room are sub par. Entertainment was boring except for Spectrum. 10 Th cruise we've taken, fourth with RC and2 nod on Anthem. Worse cruise we have ever gone on. They should hire a whole new cruise director and staff. Waited 15 minutes for a server to take our order for dinner. He was about to walk away when I grabbed his arm and told him to take it now. Worse cruise we have ever been on. And they don't really care if I say that!

Best place for breakfast. For whatever reason, cruise ships just do not make very good breakfast, however, the staff made sure you had what ever would make you happy. Again, the way cruises use to be.

The Grande

Food was boring. If you did not have a regular time and table (we did my time dining) you were pretty much ignored. The cruise ships should go back to envelope tipping.

Jamie's Italian

Very good. We had a wonderful server. Again, worth the extra money.

Chops Grille

Yum. Worth the extra money. Treat you like what a cruise is suppose to be. Server was attentive and made sure you were pleased with everything.

Café Two70

Servers keep their back to you until you say "excuse me" then they finally stop talking or turn around annoyed that you interrupted them. Food isn't bad.

Music Hall

Two years ago there was something always fun going on in the Music Hall. This time the only thing that was any good was the couple at another table that was having a discussion about what a slob the husband was. Boring!

Ship tip

Check exactly where your stateroom is. Our room was directly over the lifeboats so the tops of the lifeboats as well as the large white brackets are in all our pictures. Make sure they are upfront with you when booking and paying for a balcony. Don't think that they will help you out, they won't.
