Review summary

The directors need to work more closely together for better guest experience. New cruise director needs better training. Hotel director very seasoned & great leader. However food disappointing. Spa was terrible & should be removed from the ship!!!

Food and Dining

Food was average especially considering the cost of the cruise. Many dishes we had to send back. However, The restaurant staff was very attentive & knowledgable. Only ate in main dining room, no specialty restaurants.
