Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
the food was second to none with a wide variety in the The Meridean dining area, the specialty we did"nt try, we were so pleased with the Meridean. However we did experience the buffet in the Belvedere one morning and not too happy, the food was ok but very crowded and hectic.

The headliners shows in the Palladium were excellent , we also saw Julian Smith twice and he was fanastic. The orchestra and the other singers and musicians were also very good.
