So many choices. Always able to find that comfort food, various ethnic food, or specialty items. Bakery and desserts were fantastic. No sugar added options as well. ate lunch there often. Very good.

A nice place to relax, and get away from the younger crowd. Spent much of our time there.

Did not have children on board, but it certainly seemed to have a lot of activities available.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Joseph Veri and Nayeli were the best we could have hoped for for the best dining experience ever. Second to none. Treated us like royalty, but very congenial and outgoing. Cant say enough about these two. Erosco(sp) to care of our cabin and kept the hallways clean, constantly using disinfectant on the railings and door knobs etc.. Very pleased with the cleanliness. Always required or reminded to wash our hands.

Ship Quality
